Philosophy RAE yet again

I'm sure most people are getting a little bored with this -- but the detailed RAE results for philosophy are now out. I can't conceive why the results weren't given in this form in the first place (three months ago). For as you'll see, the initially published "Overall Quality Profile" scores can be pretty significantly misleading as to relative gradings for the actual Research Outputs we care about. (E.g. a four point difference with 4* ratings for the latter can turn into a fifteen point difference in 4* ratings for the former.)
