I think that this is really what threshold subjects are all about -
reflecting real-world experience in the "cyberspace" counterpart. Now, my
expierence in computer security is limited, but I find the Clark-Wilson
integrity model very attractive simply because it is based on real-world
experience. Re-inventing the wheel is not always necessary.

Surely not? :-)
I would not want to see threshold subjects removed.
