This forced the participants to take distinct positions, which worked out very clearly what people actually agreed and disagreed about. Such a sharp debate over restoration issues would not have been possible on the basis of case studies in particular systems, which would have addressed a totally different level of discussion; that is, questions on system details. No doubt, such a discussion would also have been valuable, but only for a handful of system experts concerned about comparable problems.
