I agree that a devic model -- even if cast as "intense energy and
information structures" is not a good starting point. 

The first step is to actually produce some well designed, cleanly
conducted and well analyzed research on SV showing some results.
(Difficult as several have pointed out to get funding for such, but
that, while difficult, is not an unsurmountable obstacle.) 

Positive results, may or may not occur. But if they did, a full blown
explanatory model is not required to publish the results. They can be
cast as anomalous, perhaps related to magnetic directional
sensibilites of birds and some mammals. And the traditional
explanation could be given -- with the acknowledgement that while
empirically hard to fathom, such a tradional explanation may lead to
intestigation of subtle energy and information strucutres.
