I thought you knew better.  There's a new name for service providers who do
not follow the roadmap.  They are called 'defendants'.  I am restricted
from saying more than to indicate that an expert witness consulting
engagement is very lucrative

I suggest you follow the roadmap.  If you don't, it's possible to get it
right, but more usually then not, it's get done wrong.
