Dermot: p.s. I'm not sure that on a cost benefit basis this will ever make sense.
Exactly! Which is why it's so important to do this kind of analysis.
Also, because of the need to do a proper cost/benefit analysis (and
Margaret perhaps also revisit some of the questionable conclusions such
as the risk analysis and the arguments that can be made for an even high
level of criticality) we shouldn't assume in our wording that the fixes
will be done. It should be if, not when. In the unlikely event that
the cost of fixing this system can be justified, etc. . . We need to
keep reinforcing that this system should not be used, ever. It doesn't
make sense to throw more money after this kind of system. It would be
like spending money trying to make a hippopotamus look like a cat--no
matter what you spend it's not going to be satisfactory.
