I believe that the modification should be accepted. The proposal distinguishes explicit knowledge that has been openly formulated as propositions by an agent, and implicit knowledge that hasn't been so formulated. The only sense in which this is problematic is the question of whether this classification is made from the point of view of the historical actor, or that of the modern observational scientonomist. Suppose the historical actor formulated the knowledge explicitly, but historical evidence of this did not survive to the present. From the scientonomist's point of view, then, the knowledge might seem to be explicable-implicit, even though it was explicit for the historical actor. Such limitations on our knowledge should, at least, be acknowledged, but it isn't clear that any changes are needed to accommodate them.
