Thanks for your analysis of the M-K write-up. I think it is interesting
that about 90 years ago, Poincare said the following (in one translation),
in a discussion of the role of precise definitions:

"It is difficult for a teacher to teach something which does not satisfy
him entirely, but the satisfaction of the teacher is not the unique goal of
teaching; one has at first to take care of what is in the mind of the
student and what one wants it to become."
