Adam, I think the subcategories should go first for the reasons I indicated in my email. Also a "subcategory" section might not be so relevant since there are so many of them, including in the ways to explain causal, path and resultant empowerment. I put them here to stress the point.
- I think we are just beginning here to produce something complete and thorough. In time, we will have to add much more material, including the futher subcategories you mention. I agree that there are currently some misunderstandings which need to be clarified, and that will be achieved if people read the whole article. We can not logically mention the subcategories of empowerment before first introducing empowerment in the context of wang, lung and tri. We should be aiming to produce a thorough, comprehensive article rather than to stress specific points. It is fine, however, to include a subsection called 'Clarifying Misunderstandings' or something like that.

- I understand. Yet I still have one doubt as to why not have the subcategories before. Actually if you look at any traditional presentation of empowerment such as Jikmé Tenpa Nyinma in the Dzöder it is one of the function of the empowerment, and the different functions and benefit are presented after the subcategories. And actually this point on wang, lung and tri don't really belong to this article (although if you were to ask me where to put it instead I couldn't say) and should be actually more a kind of clarification appended to the text, but its presence as the main development in the article is supportive of the misconceptions we are trying to dispell. Anyway, it's more for the discussion, I'll go with whatever you feel is appropriate.
