It must be remembered that we have considered the problem of interdependence and separation purely in terms of the preservation of preference orderings. Returning to the pay-off matrix it will be recalled that a dominant strategy Yi was one which consistently yielded the highest Pii for all X;. e. (pii) over allj always yields the same X;. This will free the choice of X; from that of Yi but with a variable pay-off, the preference ordering is unchanged and therefore the independence preserved. However, the value of the objective function has been changed and therefore we must recognise that reproducing preference orderings does not necessarily imply a maximisation of an objective function - the economic agent could be at a local maximum in what is obviously a nonsmooth function but not at the overall maximum.

In a simple case there will be a one-for-one relationship between goods and activities such that the latter concept becomes effectively redundant. We would also normally expect the number of attributes, p, to be less than the number of goods, n.
