I believe some will "accept" something as a working hypothesis, if it seems
reasonable, in order to see if it works.  In other words, some people might
use the "center of origin" concept and, finding it useful, continue with it
even in the absence of proper evidence.

Perhaps so. I was covering all bets. I notice that many Darwinian
dispersalists appear to accept Darwinian centers of origin without any
evidence....
