Yes, correct.  But the open issue is where in the hier' is the Best Place
to renumber:

(1)	End users; or
(2)	Intermediate systems (i.e. translation or encapsulation).

There is quite a big differnet technosophically in the approach
between (1) and (2).

High Regards,

Tim

postscript:  also, as engineers, we should not encourage an approach, IMO,
that further puts small businesses at a disadvantage ... namely (1).
