As far as definition, that's a pretty good summary. More technically, the Affirmative doesn't say they are
reforming the SQ, but simply that we should
reform the SQ. They claim this statement by itself affirms the resolution. (Which is theoretically uncertain - see below.)
As far as content, most whole-res cases basically consist of 8 minutes of harms.
As far as attacking, I wrote a blog post about this here
. Basically, I would argue that whole-rez arguments don't affirm the resolution because they don't prove that a valid solution actually exists to the problems they present. Thus, they don't affirm that we should actually reform.
