One solution is to keep 1E cards wording like it is, ut on the database/glossory have the more mechanical text that is praise.
There s a good thing in he flavor of the cards being rich. But there's also a need for lear, unambiguous text somewhere.
the core question is should the same thing (the card itself) always provide both.
I would ay the Fajo Collection was a good example, where cards like Black Hole, Dixon Hill's Business Card, and Q'Uapla all gave to varying degrees a printed card that conveyed well the intentions of what the card did, but then also the rules supplement explained in mechanical detail what that was.
One "advantage" we have now is that everyone playing has easy access to the database of exact wording at all times with phones to clear up anything.
TL;DR - the card text should clearly convey the intent, but I'm ok with having a database entry that explains the mechanics instead of the card itself, at least in theory
