I must have been thinking of someone else then, sorry.

But anyhow, I think there are people out there out who are considered
emerging (at least by peers), consider bernhard gunter who got a mention at
PAE, who is over 35 but not gone through schools to learn all this stuff.
But that sort of decision making begins to get too arbitrary and hard to
apply rules to not allow it to get out of hand. Maybe better to limit
something based on the first time they applied. Five years after their
first application, they are not longer emerging.
