You suggest we devise a Grand Unified Theory to judge notability of  
Wikipedia articles, and develop it until there are no false positives  
or false negatives  (or else some process, be it admin fiat or  
consensus, will have to overrule when the policy fails). That  
obviously will never happen--at least not until years after Wikipedia  
is completed anyway.
