Thanks Luc, for your comments. You named some concerns I have with 
window decoration. In the upcomming meeting, I would like to discuss 
this topic in general and appoint someone who will address the whole 
issue (with hopefully proper solutions). Can you may attend to the 
meeting today? Or can I relegate the chosen person to you, as a 
discussion partner?
