Everybody has to earn enlightenment. While I respect their talents greatly and know my own meager abilities pale to insignificance next to theirs, I claim they have to earn XP like the rest of us. I am also quite certain any one of the recognized experts will quickly earn their sainthood should they come to play.

I just dislike the idea of so idolizing anybody that anything they say is immediately taken as gospel truth.
