hmmm, I can't conclude this from the evaluation grid.  It's only
two pages, actually just one page with a evaluation table.  The
6 sentences judging the different aspects of our proposal seem to 
be quite to the point.  I don't know how you could do better in *one* 
sentence :-)

Well, they mostly reiterate what we are saying in the proposal IIRC 
so they can't be wrong ... on a "pure" theoretical side we are not 
pushing the envelope too much last time i checked :-)
