Ok, so certainly that topic needs to be addressed (and I don’t see it on KKs list anywhere else).

But this particular item may actually refer to a different question.  I recall now that it was brought up in the systematics section in a different context - I think the non-electron scatterers didn’t have a clear idea of how one modified the generator to be useful for the question being asked.  So I think there was a “worry” that there would be Mott (or other backgrounds) that could reach the detector without going through the acceptance defining collimator.  We explained that for detector rate studies one tunes the generator for the spectrometer acceptance, and for other background studies one allows all interactions to proceed in GEANT.  I think there was concern that perhaps the backgrounds from beamline scattering weren’t accurately measured.  As I said, the question started from a point of confusion and I suspect this bullet reflects the fact that the confusion didn’t get resolved.
