I should have mentioned that I am aware it would violate the present
agreement, and would require the OK of DD.
I guess I just wonder if DD would appreciate any load reduction, but
I'm shooting completely in the dark here as I don't know what the
load is, or their capacity etc.
Just seems that anything that "spreads the load" is a good thing in
general. Such a feature might also have application in places other
than the US where the schedule info situation might be vastly different.
