The authors duly noted this limitation in their text because the criteria are confined to three dimensions of psychopathology (positive symptoms, negative symptoms, and disorganization) and did not address other domains (e.g., cognition, psychosocial symptoms) that are critical to functional recovery. They further added that "symptom quiescence" does not necessarily equate with functional improvement. The problem is that the majority of the specialists and lay users of this term from here on will not have the nuanced sophistication of its authors. This is more than semantic quibbling because nomenclature is not just a matter for psychiatric researchers anymore. It has implications for patients, families, direct-to-consumer advertising, insurance companies, governments, and societies at large.
