Compare this to the discovery of Dark Matter by Vera Rubin. With her work originally dismissed by peers, Vera Rubin's suggestion was able to win over advocates until it is fairly widely accepted today. But Dark Matter doesn't have a document like the Wedge document: spelling out a 'strategy' to gain acceptance.
Why doesn't it?
The fact is most scientific theories were met with outright rejection or at least a large dose of skepticism. The main difference between all of these and ID, is research. Plate Tectonics, originally called continental drift, originally was rebuked by science since there was no known mechanism to move continents, through research it was found that the earths crust consists of plates which move by magma pushing at plate boundaries moving plates apart and at other boundaries, one plate move under another. (italics simplified events)
