 * An industrial strength ORM, built 
   from the core on the identity map, unit of work,
   and data mapper patterns.   These patterns
-  allow 100% of object persistence behavior to 
-  be defined declaratively.  The domain model
+  allow transparent persistence of objects 
+  using a declarative configuration system.
+  Domain models
   can be constructed and manipulated naturally,
   and changes are synchronized with the
   current transaction automatically.
 * A relationally-oriented query system, exposing
-  joins, subqueries, correlation, and everything
-  else explicitly, in terms of the object model.

   Writing queries with the ORM uses the same 
   techniques of relational composition you use 
   when writing SQL.  While you can drop into
   literal SQL at any time, it's virtually never
   needed.
-* The most comprehensive and flexible system anywhere 
-  of eager loading of related collections and objects.

+  Collections are cached within a session,
   and can be loaded on individual access, all 
   at once using joins, or by query per collection
   across the full result set.
 * A Core SQL construction system and DBAPI
