Inclusion criteria?[edit]

What is the basis on which the included texts are included (i.e. how is "important" defined)? I see the lead specifies it's based on topic creator, breakthrough, and/or influence, but according to who? The article cites no sources whatsoever. What kind of breakthrough is a significant enough breakthrough such that it's included? I'm seeing some redlinks, which indicates some of the texts aren't even "important" (or notable) enough to have a Wikipedia article. As of now I'm thinking the entire list is original research for these reasons, but maybe someone can correct my perception? --— Rhododendrites talk \\ 04:39, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
