Quite. It was concerns along these lines that caused me to ask the
question in the first place. Until a service via the Gateway is comparable
to Classic Athens or AthensDA then the Gateway isn't actually much use as
far as transitioning _our_ production services are concerned. It's
irrelevant here if the shortcomings are in the Gateway itself or as a
result of decisions made by resource providers.
