Hi Gregor,
This reply was very slow because I have been travelling, but still 
important to get it said.  Thank you for pointing out my error re the 
origin of the 'paper parks' term.  I had always thought Graeme Kelleher 
had coined it, and had not checked.  Your message plus some that followed 
have clarified, and I have learned something.

'Paper park' is a great term -- so perfectly evocative of the uselessness 
(as flimsy as tissue paper), and so correct since the law and the 
management plan are usually printed out on paper, nicely bound, on a 
shelf, ready to be shown to anyone who wants to know if the particular MPA 
is real or not.  Such a perverse view of reality!
