Does it meet the design goals?

Any complete notation system should be able to notate any music within limits of the music system (western music in this case). But does it do it better than the system it seeks to replace?

Standard music has alot going for it. So maybe a new system doesn't replace it, but lives beside it, adds to it, or acts as a developmental bridge.
It's time to take a stand against the synthesizer.
