But in most of the case, that will hardly be sufficient to run the
simulation. sboTerm are not meant to replace kineticLaw. In the case of a
wrong sboTerm, it is likely that there will be inconsistencies between
sboTerms of parameters, speciesReferences and kineticLaws. Therefore, the
simulator clever enough to reconstruct kineticLaws based on sboTerms won't
be able to. In the event where sboTerms are consistent, there are great
chances that the mistake is actually in the kineticLaw!
