Why not? Please explain. You can't go around claiming that layering and 
fixing causes instead of symptoms doesn't work in practice and not 
provide evidence.

This very poor PR: "KDE can only fix symptoms, not causes of bugs in 
it's code".

If up to now you've only experienced that both don't work, then the 
standard fix is to hire an external coach to show how to _make_ them 
work ;-)

Granted, if some developers in a project willingly or accidently violate 
layering (or any other guidelines), then layering can't work. The 
solution is to educate such developers, not to proclaim that the 
process doesn't work.
