thank you far all your contributions so far, and here's just a 
preliminary response. It was my idea to mail an answer to all open 
technical questions as soon as I can come with a reasonable result in 
all depth, and some topics are still discussed with our TMC team. So I 
apologize for not resonding earlier, but please allow another day.

Best regards,

Mit freundlichen Grüßen,
