be getting my wires crossed here) A7 refers to several specific types
of articles which do not assert/verify notability. I don't really see
how this is so banal, or how it could ever be fixed. Unless you want
to totally eliminate notability as a valid  speedy criteria, there are
no better options. The categories link directly to helpful and
specific types of notability requirement for which there presently are
no substitutes. Judging whether something asserts notability has never
been the difficult part of determining notability in my experience,
it's whether or not the assertion is verifiably true.
