Today's must read:

"Among the deadlines mentioned as feasible for the migration to SCT and SDD, a majority favoured either end-2012 or end-2013 when both SCT and SDD migration were considered together. A large number of respondents however made a difference between SCT migration, which could be achieved by end-2011 or end-2012 for most of them, and SDD migration, for which a later deadline was mentioned or for which no deadline was envisaged yet."
