I am sorry if that came across more dismissive than necessary - i was 
just quite taken aback by the suggestion which from my perspective 
pretty much flies into the face of the idea of verifiability.

But i understand the underlying thought process and see that it is not 
trivial at all why this makes very little sense and goes in the 
opposite direction of what might make sense.  And entertaining the idea 
for a moment and considering why you might think this helps but why it 
ultimately does not is a useful approach.
