wonderfully clear writing. Mini-note: I sometimes find it helpful when explaining a thing to state its purpose in addition to describing it generally. Though I understand that you had clear intentions for this sequence which didn't include explaining the purpose of naturalism, just describing it.

To illustrate (perhaps clumsily), imagine someone taught a whole CFAR-type workshop without ever mentioning once the purpose of any of the techniques or that the overall goal was "winning". I'd imagine the participants would be quite confused about what they're doing and how to do it correctly. You could maybe reveal the point of the whole undertaking afterward and the techniques would start to make more sense to the participants in hindsight. But it would probably have been easier and more conducive to understanding the techniques if the participants had known the point of the techniques from the start.
