I agree with Fraser and Sarwar that if we accept the existence of a certain type of criteria, we should also accept the respective stance. Since we accept the existence of compatibility criteria - and this strikes me as unproblematic - then we should also accept that there is such a stance as compatibility. Thus, I fully support this modification and believe that we should accept it.

At first blush, one might think that there is no need to differentiate compatibility from acceptance, since the compatibility corollary already requires that elements of the mosaic be compatible with one another. However, Fraser and Sarwar argue convincingly that elements outside the mosaic can be assessed for compatibility with other elements inside or outside the mosaic. Compatibility is therefore a distinct epistemic stance, separable, in principle, from that of theory acceptance. I support the modification, and believe it should be accepted.
