FWW has covered this a couple of times from what I can remember. This article here is one, but you do need to have a membership to view the whole thing. Or you could just look it up if you have access to back issues.

On another note, you are completely right about this being subjective. As I was searching for it on their website, I came across this statement sent in by a reader

I am a longtime reader of the magazine and Web site. I have always valued FWW as a skill-builder and a technical resource. But I was disappointed with you for the first time when I read Garrett Hack’s article on how to use contrasting woods. I have a fine-art background, and in art, there is no right way—only a critic’s opinion. When I read the article, I felt a wet blanket being spread over a large group of up-and-coming woodworkers. Never once did I read “in my judgment” or “it is my opinion.”
