Now that you've read the article (if you haven't, click HERE), what do you think?

In the xMas days of joy and calm, I went thru your Webinar on C-a-C (Compliance as Code) and also had a glimpse of your Use Cases.
I think, we should raise the abstraction to yet another level...
Now I'm, scrutinizing - not the Frank Zappa way 😉 asking rethorically:
- Why do you believe that a Diagram is needed for a Team ?
You keep arguing (elsewhere) that Text is more precise/comprehensive and suitable to Auditors. So why not for a 'general audience' ?
I do agree its compelling to have easy graphics and visualizations beside of textual representations, but to whom - End Users or Architects or both ?
- What is the end-goal (not Minimum Viable product) ?
Is this to remove the variations of Platform specializations, that is tedious to roll into CIS and likewise frameworks ?
Is it to allow easy (machine assisted) comparison of findings of compliance controls detections ?
Or is the reality, it support a general control seen around like 'You must be able to present a documented system', alone invented by decades of various frameworks and standards ?
Well, if it can be automated, like by feeding a VMWare 'Software Defined Datacentre' to PlantUML, and voila - all AS-IS is suddenly documented, then we can get rid of Document Controls like mentioned, and simply require an Automated Document Generation capability should exist as a best practice.
