You overread my words, it seems. I definitely need one more class of 
English language: Alex, again, says I want μSessions in CSR, which I 
twice said I dislike. This means I can't speak English. Period.

That is exactly what "dominant subsystem" means.

Sorry. I saw the discussion stop and never reopened that page. I assumed 
(wrongly) that no consensus was reached about that subject. And never 
read the comments by Alex, with whom I mostly disagree.
