Sorry, I was posting in haste - I should have added "as far as you're
concerned" or something similar.

I should prob have said something like this.

Comp presupposed XYZ, so obviously if you think XYZ doesn't hold, you will
consider that it doesn't even get off the ground. (But tha's a failure of
the axioms, not an empirical failure.)
