It seems this is natural: smart people have started to change their views on important subjects. Since I am not that smart, I would like reviewers of articles and publications to add something like the color-coded terrorist threat level to indicate the reality-check level of what I am reading.
That could be something like:
RC0: This is highly hypothetical material. Mainly works in the vendor's environment, on the open source committer's laptop or in the researcher's lab.
RC1: This plays well in the F100 or governmental field. Complex committee-driven years-long BDUF-minded expensive concepts can be applied here. But nowhere else.
RC3: This is the field of pragmatists. The ideas, methodologies or products are based on simple, well-established and proven concepts.
Like the threat level, this scale is coarse and over simplistic. Would you like it anyway? Would you had more levels?
