By "no." I'm objecting to this entire division into supposedly "neutral"
descriptions of materials whose primary aid is to the conservator. This
labeling isn't neutral and, I would suggest, it doesn't "interpretive field
a geology" so much as decide the (potential) approahces to a work before we
even look at or think about that work--which includes a built-in set of
good/bad criteria. That much is obvious from even a passing read of this
thread. Thus my question about the good/bad issue implicit here.

Great. Let's talk about "value" rather than good/bad. What makes a work seen
"at Starbucks" devalued since obviously you seem to think that it is.
