I think *everyone* understood your points upto now, what I *suppose* 
people has been trying to hint you is that they're not valid ones, or at 
least not valid to this discussion.

Mind that what we're trying to improve here, is at a rather "low" level 
the end user may or may not be aware of, or ultimately may not be 
interested into. And making users aware of the issue (absolutely legit), 
teaching implications or giving 'em choice (also valid) etc.. IMHO is 
beyond the scope of this manifesto.

If you mean official notifications, yes there're and they're supposed to 
be delivered first to the recipients you know...? So hardly "you won't 
notice" (as the root of the word implies they're supposed to make you 
notice).

I don't think I did try to put into your mouth words or twist ones 
coming out of it (or anyone else did by that matter), but FWIW, as side 
note, the way you did address people as, expecially in the last posts, 
isn't exactly proper.

And you're right, it's *really enough* (at least for me).
