Again I have to ask - are the goals here primarily epistimic, or are they primarily about something else - e.g. fairness in the distribution of social goods?

Is the point of writing, reviewing, hosting symposia, etc to further the production and distribution of knowledge or understanding? Or is it primarily about furthering people's careers and distributing status among professional academics?

Without getting clear on those priorities, we're not even in a place to get started on these kinds of questions.
