The use of the term has become a cost/benefit tradeoff.  The cost is proving 
concrete and significant, while the benefit remains plausible but theoretical.

Besides continuing frustration with the continuing cost, what swayed the matter 
for me was realizing something rather basic:

      Anyone who reads the actual list of duties, with surrounding commentary, 
and is then unable to sufficiently understand the nature of the job, won't be 
helped by the catch-phrase and isn't someone we would want anyway...
