Thus, in the classical limit (at large separations) the Drude model approach finds support from the source side of statistical physics although it has difficulties with respect to the Nernst theorem and disagrees with the experimental data at short separations.

Thus, we still disagree with the conclusion of Crapsi et al. (2008) that Tbol provides a good measure of evolutionary status for moderate inclinations (25 − 70◦) with lines-of-sight that do not pass through either the cavity or the disk, which they reached by assuming a constant θc = 15◦ .
Evolutionary Signatures in the Formation of Low-Mass Protostars. II. Towards Reconciling Models and Observations
We disagree with their conclusion that Tbol is not a good evolutionary indicator; we find that it is not quite as good as Lbol/Lsmm but remains a satisfactory indicator of evolutionary status (although this will change in the later models; see below).
