Additionally, some new Code and product developments have added support to "my theory", in my opinion.
Let me know if you, or someone else, want to explore this further in another thread and I'll come join you. I don't regularly check for new threads, so I might miss the starting of one tied to this thread.
To me, the real value of this lies in the understanding each one holds of what "Outlet" is.
