I just made the Homer Simpson 'Doh' sound.

Thanks for your response. I see how I wasn't thinking straight about
the 3 possible SA'S in a negotiated action above (sigh), but I still
don't understand the maxLifetime values in a preconfiguredSAACtion. If
the Action has maxLifetime values and each SA Transform has
maxLifetime values, which value is used for a given SA? (the
SATransform's, the preconfiguredSAACtion's, or the minimum of the
