You take on the important things, and I speculate on the unimportant ones, or at least one of them.

My uneducated guess is that the Commission decided to cut back the size of its Green and White Papers to less than 15 pages, when faced with the influx of 10 (12) new member states and the rising costs of translation.

But increasingly complex questions can not be dealt with by ever more superficial proposals.

So, these 'executive summaries' have to be supplemented by papers that go deeper than the surface, and 'technical' staff papers manage to do that.

As I said, I am only guessing, but could someone tell me if I am wrong?
