This topic was suggested by Saul Kaplan (@skap5), who has pointed out on many occasions that much innovative development involves the use of existing capabilities in new ways. This often involves achieving a purpose more effectively by taking new approaches which bundle capabilities in new combinations. The specific issue addressed in this discussion is that, in many cases, before any new bundling of capabilities can be implemented, existing combinations must first be "unbundled".
