Yes, I dwelled on this when I wrote the message. I was slightly pressed for
time when I wrote the message, otherwise I would have tried to find a
suitable message in there.

Also, since Jack seems to be new to this list, I wasn't sure that he even
knew that the SL4-list had an archive (correct me if I'm wrong here, I
didn't at first) so the link was also meant as a way to see what has been
discussed in the past (not only about the topic in question).

Oops... It would seem that this topic hadn't been brought up before on the
SL4 list. However, I would wager that most people on this list would agree
that AI beats IA for various reasons (for example the ones in my message).
