8. I agree, may sound promising when still in the planning stage

But there's no telling what unexpected problems can crop up in the actual implementation. This kind of undertaking is a complicated thing, no matter how practical it appears on paper. And so this one now fits your second definition and, assuming that the "simple" one in the article I posted ever gets past the planning stage, that one would probably experience the same complications and delays. There is too much that is unforeseen, even among those which have already been built and have been deemed safe for years. By the time they're actually built, they're doomed to be already outmoded.
