And I'm not seeing anyone (besides myself ) saying that this topic is moot, because of lack of 1st hand empirical data.
Given that the word "moot", in common parlance, has multiple meanings, some of which contradict each other, I can't even begin to address this until I know which (real or made-up) meaning of the word you're using. Do you mean "debatable", or do you mean "deprived of practical significance", or do you have yet another meaning that you're using?
