This looks resolved now, based on interaction between Richard and Pindar.
It's upto us whether we want specifically state whether Richard's
description is consistent with the CRISP Team (if we think so).
My preference it to exlicitly confirm this as the CRISP Team for reasons
below, unless someone has a concern:
- This is an essential element our proposal and want to be clear in
(not to have continued discussions/someone else bring it up again)
- Doesn't take time to simply say this is consistent
- (Not a major reason - we are disagreeing with everything Richard say
and may be worth stating our agreement on the point we agree, which
may have indirect affect on other points. Clearly show we are not
agreeing with a person but simply the points being expresssed)
(Snip): Interaction between Richard & Pindar
Thanks Richard for your clarification.
