hi Thomas, I would say, it is a perfect example of one of the Parkinsons
law. They did´nt diskuss how it may work and how many man-hour it will
need to achieve the escape of maybe hundreds of today hard working editors.

And how much money it will really need. Because, implementing this
software is just a fractional amount of overall costs.

“The time spent on any item of the agenda will be in inverse proportion
to the sum involved.”

Because the wars in Commons, which Categories at least will fit
violence, will be unmanageable.

I don´t want to confront myself with fundamental christian groups in
categorising cruzification and holy cross as to become a to be hidden
category because of atrocious violence or not.
