First review round: 10.4 weeks. Overall rating: 3 (good). Outcome: Rejected.

Some edits suggested by the reviewers were useful, whilst other criticisms seemed somewhat unwarranted or largely opinion-based. The response from one of the two reviewers was quite lengthy but could have been improved by including more concise and constructive suggestions.
