    Abstract:
    Constructions of metrics with special holonomy by methods of exterior differential systems are reviewed and the interpretations of these construction as `flows' on hypersurface geometries are considered. It is shown that these hypersurface 'flows' are not generally well-posed for smooth initial data and counterexamples to existence are constructed.
