I do appreciate your recent work/effort WRT documenting Nasal Initialization and might even see a way to contribute missing bits to it - however, the article you've pruned (aka: deleted) by this change is certainly not outdated, Initializing Nasal early has a very different purpose and scope. While it may admittedly not seem as useful to you, it's based on discussions, and patches, among people who are intimately familiar with the shortcomings of the current Nasal initialization scheme, as well as Nasal bootstrapping issues in general, so it does provide a number of pointers to relevant work, patches and discussions. As such, it should not be deleted, as it even points to working branches/patches that solve a number of these issues via a proof-of-concept approach. The article/link you have now deleted is referenced in countless forum postings and other wiki articles that specifically talk about these very issues, changing the article to point to your new article is at best misleading, and at worst highly confusing. Regarding your particular work, you may want to look at some of Philsopher's original work, specifically the "nasal internals" PDF (LaTex document). This is not to discourage your work, I think it will be highly useful, but documenting the current scheme is not the same thing as documenting discussions and patches to solve issues related to the current scheme. Thus, please revert your change to that article unless/until there is a scheme in place to deal with the very restrictions discussed in Initializing Nasal early .
