I agree 100%.

But that doesn’t lead inevitably to your implied conclusion that such a 
function can’t exist — in a robust creative environment, it leads to an effort 
to find a way to present the arguments in a way which is unambiguous to both 
humans and computers. In other words, your inability to instantaneously imagine 
such a presentation shouldn’t impede the effort of others who might be able to 
do so.
