"Certainly there is a limit to how far information can be simplified
before it uses its usefulness."

True, but bear in mind that, to a large extent, some simplification (ie
Plain English) improves intelligibility for everyone -- even the highly
literate PhD. You can usually reduce reading age without dumbing down.
