Elite! This is deeply interesting stuff for people entering the industry
now - lots of scope.

OUCH! Not exactly our preferred source of information. :-|

Suggestion on first viewing (might follow up with questions later): Try and
get someone local who can present well and take apart the Shared Source
message (for instance, Con Zymaris [1]) to rebutt either on the day, or the
next week. This is not a one-sided issue that can be answered by MS in full.

Sounds interesting though - let us know how it goes. :-)
