I still don't think it should be written like that in the code. I don't 
find it clear to have entities marked as "Analyze => On" to mean that 
"some" analysis by "some" formal tool can be performed. I much prefer 
the firm SPARK / not SPARK distinction.

So if we clearly separate those, and we say we are mostly interested for 
now in the SPARK / non SPARK distinction, is it clear for you then? The 
fact that we can exploit this distinction to have a better usability of 
our tools is indeed a separate issue (although that's the one I'm most 
interested in).
