Some aspects of research into the dynamic wetting phenomenon are discussed where multidisciplinarity of the dynamic wetting community becomes a hindrance rather than an advantage. An instance of this is when the accumulated knowledge is cast into mathematical models that mix conceptual frameworks inherent in different levels of description. An attempt is made to establish some common reference points for the modelling and outline a research programme that utilizes the already obtained results and the complementary expertise of several sectors of the research community.
