What is the point of this article?  Seems to have lots of questionable
analysis.

For example:
TRAQ: Advantage: Words like low moderate and high are easy to understand
and most people think they know what they mean.
TRAQ Disadvantage:  The use of descriptive words to define the various
categories is problematic because words mean different things to different
people. What one person might consider to be high, another person might
consider to be moderate and so on.

What does this mean?  This is but one example of the problems with this
article.

Looks to me like someone has drunk the Valid coolaid.
