And just when everything seems to be going so well, someone always asks, -so, what is so special about your system?-.

Inventing some metrics of your own, while obviously appealing, will just not do. Since words might do you no good either, this is the point where standards come handy. The key idea here is that we are good as long as our system behaves better than previous, similar ones in at least a few in quantifiable aspects.
