interesting, thanks for elaborating.

I wonder if we could start making a stronger distinction between these
two cases of retirement.  If it isn't a throw-out I would prefer to have
that made so very clear that no one ever feels thrown out that way.
Especially that there's no guarantee to be allowed to return feels a bit
odd to me.

Best,



Sebastian
