Oh, don't take my message as "You're wrong, you're not taking into
account [...]".  It was meant more as a "This is a convenient place to
make [...] explicit".

It seems that there are really 3 sequential questions here.

1) Do we switch VCS's?

   The averaged answer to this is pretty much "Probably, but not right
   now, and not in the very near future".  Given that, the rest of the
   discussion is probably somewhat pointless; at the least it should
   be carried out with this answer kept firmly in mind.

2) Do we go the DVCS route?, and only after THAT is resolved do we go
   on to:

3) Which VCS?

The feature/capability lists of the various DVCS's contain a mix of
those features which are inherent in (or at least pretty much
universal among) DVCS's as a class, and those which are more
particular to the given system.  But in a discussion of which VCS to
(hypothetically) use, you really want to separate them out so you can
know when you're arguing for/against $SYSTEM, and when you're arguing
for/against $CLASS_OF_SYSTEMS.
