I suppose it's as you say, the presumption of bulletproof-ness works  
against us.

I would think that somebody could come up with (and perhaps already  
has) a "Display-Workflow Monitoring Checklist" that would provide a  
functioning model for monitoring and digitizing linearity, such that  
we could try to keep the variables to a minimum.  But it may be  
Herculean in nature, this task.
