comment What is the measurement for oxygen?
It wouldn't be. But that doesn't make it sound any less cool.

comment Term for locally installed and fully owned software
It seems to me that this description doesn't adequately address digital distribution, which could either be a service (anything cloud) or a product (e.g. photoshop).

comment Term for locally installed and fully owned software
My last job was in an industry rife with that sort of jargon - this is the right answer. A "product" is something handed to the end-user, whereas as service is something the issuer actively maintains.

comment If the conditions warrant
Without a technical explanation (so it's not really enough for an answer), I'd be fine with hearing "warrant" without "it", but in reading it, there's the feeling of ending too abruptly.

While the paths are different, would you regard the state of the solution as comparable? Would you consider "allegedly a drug exists that does X" and "a drug exists that allegedly does X" to mean X is just as likely/extant in both circumstances?

It prompted something almost describable as a philosophical question.

Oh, I totally agree that it's certainly real and almost certainly exactly as cool as they promise. I was asking a phrasing question.

They come to the same thing, though! In one, you're alleging they made a drug with certain properties, and in the other, you're claiming they made a drug and then alleging that it has those certain properties.
