So I could agree with some of things you've said, but to play devil's advocate here he probably says this in light of having one function do one thing. And hopefully that function can be easily transcribed. But not every code base has this and not everyone writes descriptive functions, classes, variables. So it doesn't seem feasible.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
