Well Ian, since I understand very little about the technology used by this method, any opinion of mine on matters such as this must be regarded as inherently defective, but as I sort of flit around the edges of academia without being a part of academia, I have noted that very often people who know very little about one discipline, but a great deal about some other discipline sometimes produce hypotheses that illustrate their phenomenal depth on knowledge in respect of the known discipline whilst at the same time illustrating their abysmal ignorance in respect of the other.

Having this belief as a base upon which to respond to your question, I would venture that those who might use this wizardry to classify a keris would very likely be those who have virtually no understanding of the keris.
