my statement wasn't about *how* to explain it to them, but instead 
that planning on cutting people out from the get-go would prevent 
you from even making the *attempt* to explain standards to them...

your post is a good technique for that step before that, where you 
are actually trying to get them to buy into standards -- again, 
assuming you've not cut that step out of your process by 
disregarding some users...
