This, I don't understand. What are the implementation
problems it gives us to solve?

Back when I made my post in February, I thought
that the architecture of an SI might consist
(in these terms) of a UI core, and peripherals
which translate domain-specific problems into
a form the UI can solve. Is the creation of
these peripheral modules the sort of implementation
problem you have in mind?

Now it looks as if the UI-core architecture
is just too slow to plausibly be an SI architecture.
