I agree with Frederik that user buy in is crucial, but I read 
"user-driven design architectures" as a marker that puts us in a place 
we probably don't want to be.   Users in the driver's seat can put 
security in the wrong place.  I'm not comfortable with the description. 
   I think it is not an accurate description of Kantara's objectives 
(but can live with it if I have to).
