I agree with the point, but wouldn't want to see it overstated either.

You're right to say "more objective" rather than "objective" -- so I don't
think you've overstated the point, but I'm afraid others might.

I think that tests of this sort would be valuable for development &
evaluation of AGI's, but they won't supplant the "Turing test" and other
similar tests, only (quite valuably) complement it...
