So do I.
While we're on the subject of fields, I think it's worth noting that when
you find you might not be in Kansas any more, it's generally considered
a good idea to *ask* *the* *locals*.
The CALIBRE people very clearly haven't, so we've a choice between
a) they don't realise they're not in Kansas
b) they don't think there are any native inhabitants to ask
c) they don't think Kansas vs. not-in-Kansas is important.
Either way, they've now got funding for a particular line of research,
and are almost guaranteed to be unhappy with any offers of insight that
suggests they went public with basically useless questions.
