What specifically would you propose adding back in to address this?

As Jirka correctly indicates, if we were to start from a clean slate, 
clean and complete retention or removal might seem like better 
solutions; but we aren't starting from a clean slate here.

If retaining more of the parsing gets us to Recommendation faster, then 
that may be a win.
