... in *nature* (and even there ISTR there are isolated little areas in
which Lamarck-style inheritance *does* happen - don't ask me for
references though!); there's nothing stopping an artificial system from
making use of Lamarckian evolutionary principles, which are quite well
defined and understood.

Lamarck-style evolution is a plausible, testable/falsifiable theory.
Meaning that it's possible to set up a reality in which it's the
dominant form of evolution...
