Progressively decreasing Pareto sensitivity

It could theoretically be objected to the principle shown in http://gettingsciencegoingagain.blogspot.se/2015/02/general-new-theories-less-pareto.html that it would have applied to earlier generalizations too, and therefore would obey the Pareto principle. However, that ignores the fact that the path from fine-tuning to generalization is a continuum. While past generalizations like relativity did make more predictions than a fine-tuning, they still make fewer predictions than an even more general theory would. A theory of everything would make the most predictions, thus having the greatest chance of some of them being low-cost testable.
