I'm a little confused here. Which of the following do you mean:
  1. You believe that the LC approach needs to be somehow patched to avoid the
      unexpected single-check getValue behavior?
  2. You believe that it is good enough for now that no one has yet
      built a machine that actually exploits the model agressively
      enough to produce this behavior?

(Or something else?)
