Yes. That is when the horse sense of the human comes into
play. One paper I read described the migration away from
humans-in-the-cockpit to humans-in-the-loop.
Again, when XML was being spec'd, I don't think enough
people considered real time systems because it didn't
seem sensible then to consider the WWW as C2 system.

Yes, people thinking about "systems" often tend to think in terms of a
big machine, and deemphasize the characteristics of a dynamic system of
interacting pieces. The various and incompatible methods used to hook
all of this stuff together, and the combinatorial complexity leads to
some interesting situations. The complexity comes in at the
interconnections, and the same complexity that makes it hard to build
the system is what also makes it difficult to stop the hacker who puts
Ted Kennedy's name on the terror watch list three times.
