Yes I think it is pretty clear that the "institution" of sannyasa (with 
danda, kesari clothes etc.) is not a hard requirement. But the physical 
renunciation of material goods and values is required for moksha wouldn't 
you agree?

Hopefully sometime next week I can write about the discussion on sannyasa 
ashrama in the Brahmasutras.
