No - it still sounds shocking as a first cut.

"We need more SLDs - because we need more SLDs?"
   What problem do you think you might possibly be addressing Simon?
   And is this a solution?

"We need to manage competition"

   Huh? Is this the New Age form of "managed" competition?

  What do you mean by competition, and how do you expect to achieve it?

As a first cut there are gaping holes as far as I can see Simon.

I'm sorry, but the deja vue with the IAHC work is overwhelming, and
my point is that a little better effort in understanding the problem domain
rather than pontificating bandaids will go a long way forward.
