This is fair and I take half the blame as a non-co-author.
I voiced just this kind of complaint when I first studied
this kind of course (A Hitchhiker's Guide to the Meta-Universe)
and I could and should have fixed this consistently -- but alas,
after one or two courses that tried this, I went back to the old
mold. Just show them the right way, there are too many ways to
do things wrong, and too many silly arguments to take apart.
