That is a single point of control, not a single point of failure.
Axiom has a single point of control, one per branch and one per
silver and gold.

I don't recall that everyone was required to stop development.

And, indeed, life intervenes. The project was not stalled though
because I spent time getting a hundred copies of Axiom built and
handed out at the ISSAC conference. The result of this time gained
us (hopefully) access to Manuel's work and a few other connections
to other people in our target audience.
