      The difficulty here is that you are invoking a proposed solution to
      the problem (that Mark and Q overlap) as part of your statement of the
      data. Mark-Q overlap has been a particular difficulty in this area --
      Mark-Q overlap has become so accepted a part of the standard solution
      to the Synoptic Problem that it is regularly presented as a means of
      describing the data. I argue in various places that one should not
      talk about Mark-Q overlaps when one is describing the data; rather,
      one should talk about major agreements between Matthew and Luke
      against Mark.
