re: You are right to a certain extent. However, I see several layers we might want to peel off before getting to a sufficiently atomic piece of an impl...
 

Exactly, what I am referring to is usually an incredibly small detail in the grand scheme of things.The small scope and trivial nature becomes hard to see when you're tasked with refactoring something that is considered to be a ball of mud, particularly if its a mission-critical ball of mud. I would never suggest we shouldn't consider contract-level intent, or design, just that there is a parallel for whether these sorts of details actually matter.

 

Right on. I think the concern (with intent) at the detailed level carries over from the concern at the higher level.

Right, figuring out what level matters or is intentional is definitely a skill!
