However, it would be nice if we had some clear and simple guidelines as to what belongs and what doesn't rather than making it a matter of subjective judgment; otherwise the only fair way forward seems to be accepting almost everything.

"Has anyone used this recipe in living memory ?"
would be a clear guideline.
(SO etc. track that with member voting, up / down and when.
Is there a simple off-the-shelf voting package that we could use for
recipes ?)
You're right, the tradeoff isn't easy:
accept everything -- hodepodge -- or cut through the jungle.

OT / beyond-topic, I think that each major area
(cluster fft integrate interpolate io ...) should have an owner;
all recipes with no owner go into "old/..." aka "nobodyknows/..."
I'm sure that's been discussed, no volunteers ...
