The point is not buy-in.

The point is making sure you're building to current behaviors rather than
coming up with a new behavior.

The only way to do that is to FIRST document current behaviors, which no-one
in this discussion has yet done.

> I understand your concerns.

Actually, I don't think you do.  If your had, you would have spent even a
fraction of the words in email traffic instead on the wiki documenting the
necessary background research.

It is a waste of time to explore the concept without first documenting
*real-world* examples of existing *content* and *formats*.
