First off, I think this is a fantastic idea and can help get actual good definitions that we can agree on.

However, I think that it shouldn't need to be made more accessible. We don't have to teach deck types and strategies using phase diagrams. We have other, better ways to describe concepts. This is just a way that those of us who know the general ideas can get an actual consistent definition in place to describe extremely complex ideas.

Here's an analogy: when calculus was first invented, limits and analysis didn't exist. Calculus is easily teachable (and easier in my opinion) using vague ideas of tiny quantities that magically disappear sometimes, which is how calculus was first done anyway. Then you start getting into the weird things that most people that apply calculus (scientists and engineers) don't care about. Eventually, you start getting the rigorous definitions of calculus using limits and analysis. It's complicated because it's what was needed to find an actual definition of the ideas. These phase diagrams are to strategy as analysis is to calculus.
