Am I the only one who loved this wonderfully ambiguous heading! Are we 
talking translucent or transparent? It brings to mind visions of 
invisible scientists like the Invisible Man.

Thanks for putting a humourous spin on an otherwise serious issue that 
really needs some debate. As the partner of a scientist who spends an 
inordinate amount of time writing grant applications, competing for 
relatively few grants with limited opportunities to challenge 
unsuccessful outcomes, it would be great to see more transparency in 
this area at least.
