Okay.  This is the first time I've heard this so as you can imagine it's 
kind of hitting me out of the blue.  Are you wanting to start the 
schedule from scratch and thus remove the parts you consider "clutter?"

Can you clarify what you expect our starting point to be at Tuesday's 
meeting so that I'm coming with the right expectations? (choose one)
   a) Blank slate
   b) Re-work draft I posted
   c) Your version

Both.  Most of the docs tasks depend on each other, but often when they 
start is depended on other teams or schedule milestones.  We've been 
trying to get the dependencies correct for a few releases... each time 
we're (hopefully) getting a little bit closer.
