Merging sections, see also[edit]

I was wondering if anyone had objections to my merging the Ghandian engineering section with the Notable innovations one. It seems that Ghandian engineering is a synonym for, not a specific subset of, frugal innovation. Also, I deleted the see also section recently and am wondering how relevant the pages listed are. Kansei engineering is already covered in the "Engineering approaches" template on the bottom of the page, Chartjunk simply refers to extraneous data on charts and graphs, and planned obsolescence seems, if anything, an antonym for frugal engineering; Financial Times article describes frugal engineering as "low-cost products that are also resistant to tough environments such as Indian or African roads and weather."
