Reasonableness is a very flexible concept. Something can be reasonable on many levels. Using a hammer can be reasonably expected to be done by an averge person. Using an electron microscope can be reasonable expected to be done by the average scientist. However, not being accessible to the average person does not make the complexity of an electron microscope unreasonable.
Reasonableness and accessibility are a bit different although they overlap each other. You can add in words like general and such but what is reasonable differs from person to person. In Eve, I often have a discussion where someone discusses a topic. They discuss that topic well and point out how strong or weak or complex or easy it is. My response is often, "How does the average, reasonable player play?"
Many of us who read blogs, forums, eft warrior, and engage in Eve outside of Eve are somewhat super users. We talk, think, judge, weigh, create, and indulge ourselves in the game. Are we a reasonable standard? This topic has come up recently in our POS chat. Is having to have third party tools to function on a sustainable level reasonable? Is having to have IT people in your corporation to help you manage well enough to play with others reasonable. Is that the standard that we want the game to be built and catered to?
I can keep lobbing out examples, but I'm tired. It's a simple enough thought without another thousand words of explination.
