Simply put:  utterly and completely failed.  Centralization is so 
long-term inviable, even if it is making a temporary comeback in this 
country.  Further, you can't force things that would naturally be 
Guassian or power law to be flat.  Just completely unworkable.  And we 
have ample existence proofs to back that assertion up.

Well, I'm not sure I'd be up-front about that. ;-)  (Yes, you can slice 
and dice that entendre multiple ways. ;-)
