(btw, it should be "not" and not "nor" above under a))

Ok, so what is your view on this then? Am I to interpret you that you
wish me to go for a) ? Meaning integration instead of merge of concepts?

I do have an idea that we could add "Universe" as a new "type" of thing
on SM, just as I would like to add "image" as another type, and possibly
even "repository" (Monticello).

I want to work for us to end up in the best of worlds - and I need you
to work with me here.
