   thanks very much for bringing up this very important issue.  Perfect timing.

Yes - they are supposed to be saying the same thing, in the first version of the Overview.  As the discussion proceeds, I will update the overview to reflect discussed additions and changes.   When the discussion settles down, I will produce a draft-01, be sure the Overview is in sync with that, and then repeat this process for as many iterations as required.

For this first version of the Overview, it's possible that small misalignments will occur.  If you see any, please let me know and I'll make corrections.  Also, I am already beginning to include community and RSAG comments, so you'll see those additions.  Those will be called out as changes, of course.
