I am responding, briefly, to the thought-provoking and valuable paper by Andrew Chesterman and Rosemary Arrojo. I am limiting my comments to points where I am not in agreement and/or have a comment to make. Silence ‘means’ (in this context) ‘agreement’. My comments are numbered as in the original paper for, I hope, ease of reference. If, as a result, my contribution appears rather fragmented, I apologise.
