I think muddling up this argument with 'freedom' doesn't advance it one bit.
I do note that "others had better ideas" was placed next to "accept" as if you 
are rejecting an idea belonging to someone else, who is hereby advised just to 
accept it.

Instead, could you (Apollinaris) tell us the arguments *against* a consistent 
data set?
