Tall order? Maybe but remember it's now 2012 and not the 80's and the hardware, control and equipment now exist at a affordable level to allow such a philosophy to be attempted. Some of the objectives outlined have a clear solution others not so clear but we not have to invent the systems to attempt all the objectives as the technology exists waiting to be adapted now..!
