The commandment to honor your elders – does this mean someone who is old or someone who is learned and old or just someone who is learned (even if they are not old)?  Does it apply to non-Jews?  Does one need to interrupt his work to stand for an elder?  Does one need to spend money to keep this commandment?  How does one determine what makes someone an elder?  What age?  What level of Torah learning?  The elder himself has a responsibility not to walk in a place where too many people will need to stand up for him.
