Cutting the hairs: on one hand "be able to judge" on practices and on
the other hand "not a judgment on the quality".
Even if I understand the idea behind (I guess), I do not find it well
worded, if I might.
I mean, I bet that "the quality of work" is a strong part when
motivating the acceptance or the refusal, so yes it is "a judgment on
the quality of your work" (but not only).
Quality implies standards and practices; quality can be measured (more
or less). From my understanding.

Instead of 'quality', I propose 'value' which is more subjective.

Well, my English is not very good...

I find inappropriate the "Stay tuned!" in the manual.
