Well, if we are going for a scientific way of approaching friendliness,
there's a couple of things people should be working on. First defining the
problem of friendliness, second creating possible models solving that
problem and then creating general ways of critisizing those hypothesis.

So spelling out another idea is great, if it can stand up to at least the
most basic critisism already in existence. And if you want to work further
on Friendliness, then probably even if it doesn't, since it'll teach you
to critisize stuff and might help one along in the future.
