This subject comes up every few months. It seems to
stem from old painting diagrams that specify DGLE.
However, such diagrams often have no relationship to
The one thing that's missing is an actual COLOR

(Painting over PRR heralds and applying worms.)
Until such picture appears, I remain skeptical.
