Traveling waves or resonance?

Some years back this list began a discussion on the relative virtues of
viewing the cochlea as driven by traveling waves or resonance. Happily,
progress has been made in my endeavours to revive a resonance theory of
hearing and an approachable discussion piece on the subject has just been
published in PLoS Biology. The reference is

Bell A (2004) Hearing: Travelling Wave or Resonance? PLoS Biol 2(10): e337.
