with regard to your paper, I had some thoughts about this discussion.
I think there was a conflation of two issues - the involvement of the public in research led projects, and the involvement of the public in developer led projects
They are two different beasts and you need to treat them seperately. Some issues will overlap between the two (notably H&S) but the way they are set up and run mean that how the same issues may be dealt with can and will be very different.
hope that helps

**PS: An on list friend has told me that I am well-intentioned enough
and thinking in the right direction, but am not informed enough on
ppg16 issues and all that heritage folks have been doing of late to
counter it. He says that I shouldn't accuse other like-minded
archaeologists of being complacent, but instead look into what has
been accomplished. He referred to: RESCUE, the Planning White Paper,
Power of Place and Force for our Future, and others. He is right. I
know about these, but not enough, so I'm going to stay offline for
awhile so I can research more (and finish my paper).
My sincere apologies to any archaeologist I have accused of being
complacent in finding ways to protect our heritage assets in the face
of ever increasing profit-led archaeological decimation (did I say,
'filthy?'). I will learn more about the efforts that have been made
and should not have presumed that the Heritage industry's present
failure in this is for lack of trying. ---Helene
