Dear Stefan Kohl: I certainly agree that it's not concise! I wouldn't be nearly competent enough to write a textbook. As to the dangers of philosophising, I once compared it to taking out a loan: mathoverflow.net/questions/38639/thinking-and-explaining/…

Dear Olivier, I completely understand your reservation and will be perfectly fine if the community decides against this line of questioning. (In fact, it will relieve me of the obligation to continue.) On the other hand, I believe the questions in the titles are well-defined. Giving provisional answers together with the questions and asking for better ones seems not to be unusual practice here.
