I've been working with a model that I thought made perfect sense, but then someone made a suggestion to change the model into one that I think is both meaningless and impossible. I've attached diagrams of both the original (sensible0.pdf) and the suggested modification (sensible1.pdf).
The problem I see with something like sensible1 is that nothing defines the latent variable L. Put another way, there is no measurement model for L. Am I missing something, or is sensible1 inestimable?
I'd like to be as confident as I can, so your feedback is greatly appreciated.
