Lead definition[edit]

I propose moving the definition by the Stanford Research Institute out of the lead, as I do not believe it reflects current usage of the term. It is worth mentioning in the article only for historical purposes. For example, contemporary usage includes as stakeholders neighbors of a factory who may not be supportive, yet the company can continue to function without their support.
