I don't agree.  I think we do have to cover the "side issues", not least
in case the main issue is somehow dismissed.  The public will more
easily swallow the irrational dismissal of a single point than the
irrational dismissal of a lot of points (a line?).

Of course, the side issues should be given the unprominence they deserve.
