Would it accord with community norms to offer a bounty with the intention of stimulating new answers to a question, coming from certain perspectives that one regards as neglected on CV? For example, one perspective I would like to see more vigorously represented in answers here is one that maintains skepticism about purely mechanical modes of statistical inference (especially in the social and medical sciences), and urges making meaningful connections between statistical models and realistic theoretical mechanisms/constructs.
I ask because one objection I can anticipate is that offering such a bounty might seem like 'lobbying' unfairly for a certain POV, and (worse, perhaps) suppressing alternative POVs.
Epilogue: Thanks to guidance provided from all sides here, I've now offered the contemplated bounty on this question, and am seeking a suitable way to cross-post to the Cognitive Sciences community. I gather that designing workable cross-posting on multiple SE communities remains something of an unsolved problem.
I took the plainest approach to cross-posting, as seen here.
