To be frank, what a load of bull. First you attacked the method of notation, and only now, in lack of better, the idea itself. Luckily neither I or contemporary music in itself need you for...

For tempo modulations to be completely unambigous, a lot of info has to be included, as shown in Kurt Stone's handbook in notation: http://imgur.com/2sDRIV0

The bpm can be omitted but can be useful...

I'm so glad we have you to deem what is needless and necessary. Musicians with attitudes such as you are such a delight for the contemporary music scene.

The notes (as you wrote them) are actually B#-B-B#, not C-C#-C. The harmony is a D#dim7 with F# in the bass - it's enharmonic to F#dim7, but here you are tonicizing E minor, so notating it as a...
