Analysing the impact of novel middleware abstraction is a crucial activity, in particular when applied to reflective middleware, a paradigm that was proposed 10 years ago. Impact analysis is unfortunately a difficult and multifaceted task. We argue here for a broad and systematic approach based on statistical text analysis. We present preliminary results that demonstrate the potential of this approach to uncover hitherto unsuspected trends, and hopefully inform the future of reflective middleware research.
