It would help if these kind of proposals would be formulated according
to the selection criteria given in the Xubuntu Strategy document.

While I don't have any contrary evidence, this sounds just as
your own opinion...

Could you point out the research studies or other non-anecdotal evidence
which gave these results?

(The studies should include information about the used display refresh
rates and how long people have looked at the display continuously.)

Kindle uses electronic ink screen which has different display properties
from LCDs (and CRTs) used in computers where Xubuntu is installed.

Also, ebooks try to imitate books.  Normal paper of course has
also different display properties from LCDs. :-)
