Don't take this the wrong way, but that may be the smartest thing I have ever seen posted!!!!
It explains in a subtle way what could be called a "gamus interruptus" and pulls together nicely, 'marginal' into incidental contact. To some people these are the same thing, but this helps put everyone on the same page
