Good to see the work started

Forced by the authors to give it a thought, one is really surprised we don't have any Good Model Description Practice yet.

Just imagine how much easier and enjoyable would reading be if we had a common language and standards that would impose on the authors clarity and comprehensibility of their models description. And from the other perspective - I think many would appreciate some help in providing such a description in a professional way.

It's exciting to see the work started. I would recommend this article for a journal club of your group and encourage discussions on the details you'd like to see in such a set of guidelines.

With kindest regards to all the people involved in this work,
