Randomized controlled studies in airway topics… how common are they?

Despite some considering the airway as “the cornerstone of anesthesia” if one looks closely, the amount of RCS on the subject, actually are very, very rare. Doing studies on the airway is perhaps inherently difficult because the stakes of things going the wrong way are basically too high. The majority of the literature or information we have on the subject is anecdotal, or retrospective, but RCS are a dime a dozen. Take a look at this letter criticizing ┬ásome researches for what they did in their research (I am including the original article as well) and tell me what you think. I look forward for a lively discussion.
