Hello Victor,

I am not an expert in the field and I would like to clarify some moemnts:

1) we always recommend to use QGSP_BIC_HP Physics Lists for low-energy 
neutron aplications, not LHEP.

2) in QGSP_BIC_HP elastic or inelastic interactions Geant4 generate a 
recoil nucleaus with Z and A closed to the stability road. If Radioactive 
decay physics is acticvated additionally to any reference PhysLisst then 
this recoil nucleus can have radiactive decay on fly or at rest.

3) To have more correct distribution over final Z and A I would suggest to 
have G4Elements constructed from isotopes, for example, by using NIST 
elements and/or materials.

4) I do not know a model which produces secondary excited neuclei 
(experts tell us if this is wrong). Infrastructure of G4 allows but do we 
have any implementation?

5) A special method for isotope production to which you likely refer to my 
view is old and not well tested, I am not sure if somebody understand what 
it is doing (experts tell us if this is wrong).
