Hi Mike,

My guess is... your sources don't work for organizations that are secretive
about Ada per se; rather, they have to be anonymous in order to protect
contractual relationships that are not disclosable.  An unfortunate and
unavoidable consequence is that statements originating with them can't be
verified.  What do you think?

Makes sense...
