I'm a big Warre fan but I wonder if Warre would disagree with his own ideas if he were alive today? Warner's principles were based on making the most cost effective, suitable environment for bees he acquired for free in a simpler time.
If the new paradigm is $200 bees and hives are quite expensive, would warre say if money were no object and bees are precious and hard to acquire, what would he do differently?
It is not unheard of to have $800+ into a modified warre, stand, fence, pad to place it on, feeder, frames, foundation, etc. seeing how far that is to the economy people's hive, I wonder if there is a better version of a Warre to be made at that price point?
