The science has to be relevant though Vinnie.
Lemme give an example.
I'm a little bit of an audiophile. So tube power amps have generally measured far worse than solid state amps for total harmonic distortion. As many of us who listen to both though know, many tube amps can sound much much more pleasing. Well, here is the relevance part. Research showed that our ears are particularly sensitive to odd order harmonics. When solid state amps begin to clip, they tend to generate a lot of this. Tube amps however tend generate even order distortion which is less bothersome when listening.
My parallel point is just because the science supplies x values, it's pertinence may not be as significant as it might suggest. Clearly no one is walking out of theaters due to mll, and the large numbers of lcd owners aren't tossing their sets out the window due to their mll performance.
