In other cases personal and exhaustive testing is simply a waste of time. If someone tells me that me that you need to open up 3 stops when you double the distance from a flash to the subject, I would hope that I or others could convince them otherwise based on purely theoretical reasons. Testing would just be waste of batteries.
