This modification assumes that scientificity is a universal epistemic stance. As I indicated in my commentary on modification 2018-0013, I don't think we have sufficient evidence to think that scientificity is a universal stance. part of the complication is that we are not offered any definition of scientificity, so it is hard to tell whether that stance obtains only for some contemporary communities or whether it is universal. Therefore, changing the definition of theory acceptance at this stage would be premature. My position is that this modification should not be accepted.
