:> The only place where I suggest an "Ada Mandate" is in interfaces.

That would be one place.  But I wouldn't go as far as you did in your
hypothetical quote.  How about:

  " We (The DoD) need a system that will ..........  Previous systems
    in this domain have shown that it is possible with Ada to have
    <metric> in the range of <typical acheivable value>.  Therefore,
    proposals not promising that or better will not be accepted.
    Ada must be used , _at_least_ for interfaces to all key APIs
    in the system.  Ada must be considered as a possible implementation
    language, but another language may be used as long as all quality
    requirements of this RFP are met."
