I suggest summarising your reasoning as well as your conclusion in your tl;dr e.g. adding something like the following: "as neglectedness is not a useful proxy for impact w/r/t many causes, such as those where progress yields comparatively little or no ‘good done’ until everything is tied together at the end, or those where progress benefits significantly from economies of scale."
