you're right.  Others have noted that our opening paragraphs are not 
very clear.  We did however follow up with more explanation that 
satisfied others on the list.  Are you saying that these further 
explanations are still not clear, or that those explanations should go 
into the proposal itself (as opposed to a link from the Wiki)?

UIMA may not be the easiest thing in the world to explain, and I can 
accept that our proposal doesn't do a very good job.  However, I do 
believe that we address an important problem and can make an interesting 
contribution to Apache.  Making the first couple of paragraphs of the 
proposal more understandable should be a surmountable problem.
