Well, I sorta agree.  I do agree that dimensions are the most important
thing -- that all the pictures in the world don't matter if you can't
get the size and proportions of the structure right.  But, OTOH, some
level of detail is important, and you can't get that from numbers.  Back
in 1984, we could get simple buildings lacking detail in  MS Flight
Simulator, and they looked absolutely awful.  Even by standards then,
they looked awful to me.  I'd certainly like them to look something
like the real thing now.
