Agreed. I imagine it is like a leaking Kitchen faucet. It starts out 
simple enough, stop the drip. But it ends up costing $30k because it 
caused a cascade of events which result in a kitchen remodel.

Again, it is just a single suggestion for how we may capture some of 
that value we leave at the table. The purpose is capture that value to 
further enable the OWASP mission. I am open to ideas for others.
