    Frank,
    You write:

    The disagreement on the general accuracy of Lunars concerns only
    interpretation of the results. About the published results themselves,
    there can be no disagreement as long as we trust their authors.
    
    And interpretation of results is always subjective. Subjective is the
    meaning of a sentences like "generaly the accuracy of X miles (or minutes)
    can be realiably achieved".
    
    I take a "conservative" point of view about the words "generally" and
    "reliably".
    
    Alex.
