What value is this paper?

I finally read Conyer Herring's article Distill or Drown: the need for reviews.
It contains the figure above which is worth thinking about.
It provides a nice classification of the value of published papers.
Furthermore, it claims the distribution in value shifts with time, so that after 5 years most papers are not of significant value.
