I concur and that is where I am also having the most problem.  I have always 
viewed map conversions and datums as completely different entities.  This 
goes back to the early days of several of the programs that tightly bound the 
projections with the datum process and my pleas to more clearly separate the 
processes were pretty much ignored.

Alas.  :-(
