It's not significant if you plan for it. Your independent rate should
account for infrastructure, or, you build the price of the software as
a flat cost into the contract agreement.

No, they're calling for integrated applications. Like FrameMaker and
WebWorks Publisher. Like most Adobe products and Acrobat. Like
Dreamweaver and Fireworks. And, what do you mean by "Adobe and MM",

eating the cost of churn, you only eat it if you want to.
