As you have indicated in your 'ramblings' :-) there is no perfect answer.

I will point out that I did post on this list a link to a video of the launch 
key-note speech, from which a clear idea cold be formed of where things 
stand.  I was told by a couple of readers that they couldn't be bothered - it 
was too long.

You can't win 'em all :-)
