You're saying HW people can buy a SAKC instead of a NN.  This is fine.
We should know that this is how we see things.  Originally, the idea
(AFAIK) was to make the SAKC an extension to the NN, not a replacement.

As I wrote, I think the interesting part of being an extension is
possible for much less money.

So as I thought you say people use it instead of, not with, a NN.  I
think this is indeed a much more interesting option.

Right.  That sounds good.
