1) I have no actual expertise on a particular subtopic
2) I therefore rely on various SMEs (subject matter experts) on that
3) The SMEs do not agree

But I will forward this all on and see if maybe some understanding of
justifications can be reached. Outright agreement or conversion of opinions
does seem unlikely, however. :-(
