I'm pretty sure 80/20 Rule has become a platitude (as it was used in the example you provided at the beginning of your article).
From Wikipedia:
"A platitude is a trite, meaningless, or prosaic statement, often used as a thought-terminating clichΓ©, aimed at quelling social, emotional, or cognitive unease.[1] The statement may be true, but its meaning has been lost due to its excessive use."
No worries. No one believes in 80/20 Rule anyways -- except where it is true.
For example...
80% of the work is done by 20% of the people. πŸ˜†πŸ˜†
