Dear Leonel -

Thank you *so much* for sharing this!  I think it 
will prove to be of value to many people.  It is 
great to see the sharing of ideas via this online 
community -- thank you.    You should also be 
congratulated on your hard work which is apparent 
through this framework.
best regards,
