Sorry, it was an exageration to make the point: without some concrete
information from Nokia, we've no idea. (From a technical PoV, IT 2005
and IT 2006 have been completely different, though: lots of minor
releases to fix bugs in the former; nothing like that with the latter
- but there's Sardine instead)

And despite David's flippant comment to read what Marius said as
gospel - because it came from @nokia.com - Marius' later clarification
that this was *not* to be taken as a promise underlines my question.

Although I take your point, TBH, I've got better and more productive
things to do with my time than define English words and idioms. If
Nokia want to employ consultants on CRM and Assertiveness without
Aggression[1] that's their perogative.

However, Clue #1: professionalism is not referring to customers
through an official channel as living in "twisted little world"s.
