A choices get made either from some basic technical limitation or from
some balancing act.  The difference is important, but which ever drove
the choice, that choice becomes entrenched.

So I see the exercise Brian is requesting as being one of identifying
choices that were made that probably would not be the choice made today,
but which has too much history/momentum to change easily.
