Chris:

May I be so bold as to suggest that promoting the use of sources for
every single piece of data, without exception, is enthusiasm; but
insisting that this is the *only* intelligent, or proper, or reasonable
way to do it, is elitism.

That may not be what Virginia meant. It is what I think, however.
