Ah, yes, exactly.  Let me add that the Mechanism issues become more
difficult the less experienced the target user is.  For deep reference
information, we can be relatively unsupportive of Policies, because
someone who wishes to pursue NTP to that depth has the incentive and
time to adjust to our prescriptions.

But for the "getting started" information, we need to be able to
support almost any Policy decision.
