In Alberts, they say that the initial attachment of the 14-sugar complex to
Asn's in the ER happens rapidly . . . something like "most proteins are
glycosylated as they are translocated".  Anyway, the important part was the
"most" -- does anyone have an idea what "most" means?  Does it have to do
with kinetics or selectivity or both?
