Wanted to amplify the point i made on the call today

Executive summaries can be very powerful things as many will just read that 
portion of the document.  

Given this,  I don't think the summaries we provide for each of our proposals 
should include any words about the level of support or endorsement for our 

Kristina - I understand the response you made to this, but i just don't think 
we'll get agreement on how support should be characterized.  I think we'll get 
into protracted and unsolvable debate over adjectives like 'some', 'many', 
'good', 'broad', 'strong'  etc.  Even a seemingly benign statement like 'there 
was support from xyz' is going to be debated as support for one piece of a 
proposal doesnt necessarily mean support for all pieces.

My strong preference is to leave such descriptions of support  out of the 
proposal description.
