High quality σL and σT data for both kaon and pion would provide important information for understanding the meson reaction mechanism
VGL/Regge (Λ2K=0.68 GeV2)
Nucleon resonance data scaled to W=1.84 GeV
L/T separations above the resonance region are essential for building reliable models, which are also needed for form factor extractions

Kaon production data would allow for a quasi modelindependent comparison that is more robust than calculations based on QCD factorization and present GPD models
Bonus: Fπ,K  a factorization puzzle?

Comparing the observed Q2 dependence of σL,T and FFmagnitude with kaon production would allow for better understanding of the onset of factorization

Is onset of scaling different for kaon than pion?
Kaons and pions together provide quasi modelindependent study
Request 47 days to provide first precision L/T separated kaon production data above the resonance region. Excellent candidate for early running.
