The meat of a patent is the claims. They are what may be issued or denied. They
are what is contestable in court. 

To evaluate the scope of this application, you need to analyze the claims very
carefully, with particular emphasis on the term "concurrent."

 All the discussion here thus far is pointless, politically-correct hot air.
