Hmmm - the problem is that there often multiple "correct" designs. That
is, none can be proved to be "incorrect" in every context. The notion
of "correctness" is context sensitive. One person might define having
an empty state as "incorrect" while another might have another
definition. The problem here isn't making a "correct" design, it's
agreeing on what is "correct"
