Preamble

Since the new formulation of the second law clearly forbids a number of logically conceivable scenarios, it is possible, in principle, to infer what assessment outcome obtained when a theory was assessed by the method of the time by studying what actually happened to the theory in terms of its acceptance/unacceptance. Thus, it makes sense to outline what inferences an observational scientonomist can make regarding theory assessment outcomes from the record of accepted theories.
