Sometimes yes, sometimes no. But given

1] that this topic is discussed in many, easily accessible sources, --e.g.
several introductory texts on Textual Criticism, etc-- (by comparison on a
list devoted to Physics, a presisent request to, say, justify the concept
of the conservation of energy would be rightly directed to a freshman text
on the subject)


2] that, in any case, this is *not* the topic of this mailing-list.

A pointer to a sound, even-handed reference seems a perfectly reasonable
