New System Search too subjective

I don’t understand the change from the original ‘Advanced System Search’ feature to the new ‘System Finder’: with the original, there were objective stats that could be entered in order to drill down to the type of system the user was looking for. Now all that has been replaced with subjective, pre-evaluated buttons, just as it seemed there was a move in the right direction with the addition of the APD value, another good objective statistic.

Wouldn’t the more logical move be to add the new APD value to the original Search, rather than scrap it and replace it with a less objective, less selective, alternative?
