Perhaps I should have said "directly measurable", or maybe "clear and 
present" fiduciary consequences.  But at this point it becomes pointless 
nitpicking, unless there is in fact a use case for splitting hairs to 
define whether something is or isn't an "enterprise" application.  From a 
practical perspective, what gets into PEAK is heavily influenced by the 
needs of software development and system administration at my "day job", 
dealing with a highly heterogeneous processing environment including 
numerous internal systems and business partner APIs.
