ON "Accept the definitions of authority delegation, and its subtypes, that generalize the currently accepted definitions to apply to all epistemic agents, rather than only communities."
I agree with Deivide that the modification is to be accepted. It introduces a necessary rewording in the definitions of authority delegation and its species. I find this modification uncontroversial, since, as such, it merely attempts to capture what is already de facto accepted - namely, the idea that authority can be delegated by and to epistemic agents of all kinds (both communal and individual). This is confirmed by the fact that the canonical examples of authority delegation often involve individual experts (see, for example, Loiselle 2017).
