I'm glad you did.  We seem to agree.

Your comment was, I think, misunderstood as referring to high-integrity
systems as a domain, like Database Systems.  That's really all I was

I wish that were true in more domains.  Many customers take a very
short-sighted view, and companies follow the dictates of the market.
