Which real world examples?  How do they relate to your proposals?  The  
connections you see are apparently not as obvious to everyone else.   
Please explain more how you arrived at your proposals.

Please explain why it's off topic in terms of the examples and the  
problem statement.  In a group discussion, being on topic doesn't help  
much if you're unable to get everyone on the same topic.  The  
collected examples and problem statement establish a common basis for  
discussion.  Let's use it.

This is what I think we need to do more.  Even if you still disagree,  
I hope you can see how David making his argument in terms of the  
examples makes his points easier for everyone to discuss.
