Wow, a lot of food for thought...

Well, here is the context:

However, increased XXX capacity can be a two-edged sword. On one hand, it significantly enables lower cost functionality. But on the other hand, the increasing complexity and cost of XXX designs has prevented many vendors from using, or taking full advantage of, the capabilities of XXX.

MUDDIER and muddier, one hand is good, the other is bad... and if I CUT you with a two-edged sword you are more seriously wounded than with a single-edged sword...

The client wants this a INFORMAL and UNTECHNICAL as possible (ARGH)!
