I completely agree with learning from other's mistakes and have no basis for argument...being a noob and such. However I have trained folks for years in fairly complex human interaction situations and showing them and having them practice a protocol/framework gets them comfortable in interacting with others in a group...which we did not do in the course. In a crew that goes out together, they by experience develop a pattern (good or bad); but in cases of ad hoc group at the gate, newbies, and perhaps when two crews intersect/interact in the bc...having an expected communication protocol would be good. To which, I would assume experienced bc'ers would do...but for us newbs to see it done and know that it is a standard we wouldn't be too hesitant to speak up. Oh nevermind....I just need to get out more, wear my noob flag and work through my anxieties.
