comment What exactly does とはいえ mean?
@snailboat That sounds like an interesting idea. My argument is that you can replace it with other imperatives like the ones I mentioned in my answer, but I'd be interested to see evidence for other possibilities.

comment Use of non-polite form between Japanese companies
Is it dialogue between the less public-facing members of the company? Compare conversation between engineers from different companies, and marketers/business types from different companies. The engineers, if they have a stronger relationship based on professional culture than business culture, have an "in-group" they can work through on those terms.
