You are going in overdrive with fantastic ideas!

I have been reluctant to move/delete any detection points in the past,
but it is certainly true the  DPs you mention are a bit different.  I
have used 'output/outcome/result-related' previously as a
view/classification of these types of detection points - so a
cross-cutting view instead of having their own specific category.  In
the same way we have signature vs. behavior, and attack vs.
suspicious, I would just classify some as 'output' instead of making a
new category.  My work on an XML format will hopefully make it easier
to re-order lists of DPs from lots of different views.

Of course as soon as I start thinking of input vs. output, it depends
on viewpoint.  A SQL data set could be considered an input to the

But I like response time changes, but feel it maybe fits more
naturally in UT and/or ST?
