Uhhhh...  Not so fast, Slim...  A closer analogy would be same reason a
current MRP report is used, instead of one 4 months old.  Because if the
info is spread so thin you can't FIND it when you NEED to USE it (MRP
report, or Planning Guide, or whatever)..

..Well, info you can't Find is LESS-than-useless because you lose time
looking for it.  Sames goes if it isn't Precisely and Exactly Available on
24/7/365(6) basis, as you may know.  "The Net idn't available" is no
different than the old, lame "The system's down, so no can do" type of
customer lack-of-service of decades ago.  Just a new, hip way of saying
