[WIMS] Draft of MPSA Power article/survey (28 Nov 2010)

Hi,

Well - all these changes will take awhile to digest.

At our last WIMS teleconference there was support for leaving
the history in, but oh well...I just want some closure SOON.

I really dislike your raised emphasis on the newly chartered
IETF EMAN WG (especially given that MANY of the IETF
projects fail entirely or else drag out for years).  Waiting for
IETF EMAN would be a serious mistake for HCD vendors.

And quickly, the first question has gone badly awry:

On a scale of 1 to 5, where 1 corresponds to “no importance” and 10
corresponds to “critical consideration”, ...

Is the scale supposed to be 1 to 5 or 1 to 10?

Do we really know how this will be represented in the survey?

WHY wouldn't we ask simple yes/no questions?  This 1 to 5
stuff just makes summary results fuzzier, it seems to me.

Cheers,
- Ira
