If the removing of dubious data results in the answers generated
changing then that is the stability that is objected to. These changes
resulting new output that is only changing because of two lots of
dubious states is the problem. Documenting that to the consumer is
difficult bit here when you are saying it's changed because we don't
know what it should be ... yes the previous answer is dubious, but so is
the reason for changing it?
