    If one of my children got 100% on every assignment and test, I would
    definitely conclude that the teacher wasn't doing his or her job
    properly, either by not checking the work adequately or by not providing
    sufficiently challenging assignments and material.

    In the analogee I might also conclude that there was something that
    needed changing in the relationship between WG2 and UTC, but this is all
    hypothetical and I don't intend or imply any statement to that effect.
