For the love of all that is computational, no! Using the
word "valuable" here is very wrong. The fact that BioModels
Database does not accept those models *currently* is not a
statement about the models' value. They are valuable, and a
number of modelers work with them profitably, as you know.
The inclusion or exclusion of a class of models in BioModels
Database is not to be interpreted as a value judgement about
that class of models!
BioModels Database currently has a more limited scope of
models because it's been difficult to reach agreement on how
to represent and validate certain other kinds of models
using SBML and CellML. This will change in time.
