Ay, there's the rub!   The question is not if this can be done here in
the US but, will it be done?   Like many things, whether it is in
'Public Works' or 'Public Policy,' in the US, parties generally choose
the easy/cheapest way out.  There's no need to do too much.

Planning/preparing/accounting for things ahead?  What's that?    Do not
want to take this discussion (more than it already has) to the
non-operational front.
