The P6 design specifies ...

Again, you deliberately skirt the actual issue and attempt to filibuster your way past it by quoting fanciful "definitions" from the unrealised -- and in many cases; unrealisable(*) -- hotch-potch of vague hopes and wishes that is called the 'P6 spec'.

The issue is: Does any existing, downloadable version of P6 actually implement any form of laziness?

And the answer is obviously no, otherwise you would not be applying spin. And that makes the Rosetta P6 code claims vapourware at best, or much worse.

And it is false advertising and marketing of that very ilk that has in the past -- and continues at an accelerating rate -- to damage brands far more deeply and permanently than actual lack of functionality or technical failures.

Please heed the warning. The lie of omission is still a lie.

In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
