Guidelines to self: keep your assumptions light and explicit. If you have the tools to make single-shot statements, don’t start by proving average results. If you can state your settings without relying on concepts like probability, time, dimension, or a particular underlying theory like quantum mechanics, do so. This does not mean that you cannot use familiar quantum terms to express your concepts, but it should be clear when it is being used as a language, when it is an example, and when you are actually depending on the laws and structure of quantum theory. Results are subjective and relative to something until proven otherwise, so if you can make all players, perspectives and systems of interest explicit, don’t leave them implicit. If you are representing any sort of Bell scenario, remember that a and b come before x and y in the alphabet, and keep the former as inputs and the latter as outputs. Think about it.
