Oops, I actually meant to write criticality, though I'm a little bit
confused now whether Nomitan primarily uses criticality, LGRF or both.
Perhaps Simon will want to clarify...

(In general, it seems apparent that many methods of information sharing
are complementary to a large degree, i.e. by opting for one at the
beginning, you get similar benefit as if you did a different one,
especially if you tune your way to a good local optimum.  But RAVE
came first...)
