That is precisely my point - it is futile to make an issue out of this
saying that Sruti only supports one scheme. I had made this point and
also other corollaries re: authorship in my published paper. 

One of these corollaries is that one should not dismiss the attribution
of the text named pancIkaraNa to Sankara bhagavatpAda, by saying
that Sruti does not mention this process.

I will refrain from commenting upon below the belt attacks from any
quarter, in the context of debates within the vedAnta sampradAya-s.
