I feel it's tempting. I was thinking on those options too. But, witouth
rationalizing, what do you think people will feel with a prhase like this?
They will feel attracted? Their curiosity will be waked up? Or they will
feel like scared little birds? I ask this because I think lot of people will
*think* they are not prepared for *enlightening*. If that is the case (most
people feeling like that) we should search for something that wake up
curiosity but at the same time don't produce this "scaring little birds
effect". Our quest is refining !

I can't talk for others but I imagine that at some point it will be
necessary it's only that I don't see this as the number 1 priority today.

+1. Very good observation.
