Touché!

Finagle knows I didn't invent the combo, and I didn't even post it to TECHWR-L till July '05:

My original tech writing guru used to mock it/me as, "clear, concise, and twice as nice."

OK Dan, I formally concede! From now on I promise to refer to this as Goldstein's Rubric.

Though I had "clear and concise" as far back as October 1995:

And later that year, "consistent and correct":

So close... if only I'd put the pieces together...
