The potential for A(e,e'x) measurements is beginning to be critically examined. Nuclear disintegration by electrons and photons shares many of the problems of interpretation found in reactions induced by hadronic projectiles. These theoretical difficulties should be viewed more as a challenge than as an obstacle. The strength of nuclear physics is the diversity of its probes and targets. In the past progress in finding the simplicities that nature has hidden in the potentially chaotic nuclear many-body system often came from the systematics of the data rather than one individual measurement. Nuclear physics differs from elementary particle physics in this respect.
