That's a valid point. Transparent ratings and weighings can make the
whole consistent though in terms of the abstracted goal incorporating
the different dimensions (though certainly difficult to "properly").
Contrast with the "oh I'm on a diet, I'll just have one or twelve"
approach of hoo-mans, where there is no clear hierarchy and tradeoffs
are done on a whim.
