Fasteners' role in design for disassembly

Very comprehensive overview on the current state of fasteners, Ann. I'm curious at something you said at the end that design for disassembly was not really a big trend any more. That surprises me given all the requirements and focus on sustainability and environmental concerns. isn't design for disassembly part of that march to green design?
