I intend to take into account your feedback that it's useful to  
evaluate the usefulness of individual principles now that we have more  
experience with them. Probably not by making the specific change you  
suggested, but likely it will be conveyed in the document in some way.

Incidentally, I don't have direct feedback from anyone but you to the  
effect that including the lists of more successful and less successful  
principles directly would be a good idea.
