Do you say that from a position of first hand knowledge?  I work extensively in RISG and I don't recall your involvement.  This is not the forum for me to go into the purpose of RISG and why it is both important and effective - but I will say that each group makes it own unique contribution and should be respected for that unless you have a good evidential reason for saying otherwise.
