Yes, this is a problem - but it doesn't stem from the charter but
from bionet funding. I don't think it's too big a problem though,
since if there were too many 'commercial' posts there might less
research-oriented ones, which is what the list was set up to cater
for. I think that bionet.diagnostics and biz-biotech complement each
other well in this respect.
