I think it is important that a definition is sufficiently open that community based practices which only meet part of the definition are not excluded.
Cultural maintenance, for example can be a valid activity in terms of long tem development of both social and cultural aspects of a community, and thus I think it is part of CCD practice, even though it would not strictly meet all of the ideas put forward in Riccardo or Michelle's definition.
So I think these definitions are useful so long as they are inclusive, not exclusive.
