I would say that it is possible in principle that such a boundary
exists. I would tend to draw a semantic line and suggest that such a
boundary would probably be dicovered by the failure of science, rather
than being discovered by science. I would also say that the
ID-proposed ways of detecting boundaries are no good and that
theological and empirical evidence suggests there probably aren't any
gaps requiring unmediated intelligent intervention within the course
of evolution or of forming the universe from big bang to now.
