    Teams is not covering new ground. It is going to be adopted primarily at the start by people who are curious but mostly by Microsoft customers. They are likely to be using sharepoint for their existing team collaboration. Now, Teams creates a new, separate sharepoint sandbox and attachments in Teams go there, not the original sharepoint, fracturing the knowledgebase and files. Files (storage, cost) will be duplicated between the two, and then you have a problem knowing which version (teams sharepoint version or original sharepoint version is the latest, or which 'should' be used now. Confusion, friction, resistance, slow adoption, etc.

    We would much prefer the ability to, from SharePoint, enable Teams for an existing SharePoint which is already in use. Or even an offline tool which could Teams-enable a sharepoint.

    Yes this is important. In addition, the ability to configure a notification when specific words are used is also very valuable. This is available in Slack.
