Strongly disagree. New players should not have to read through the
history of the past 100 consultations just to determine which have an
effect on the present gamestate. Oracularities provide a simple and
clean means of fixing ambiguities without having to rely upon past
records. The only breakdown with our current system has been when
priests fail to submit oracularities with their answers. This can be
solved by declaring those answers Inconsistent.

Also, answers to consultations are not irrelevant under the current
system. They do solve the problem in question (regarding the past game
action). They do not however have any bearing upon the future, which
is as it should be. The new system is not flawed, our use of it is.
