Yes, but a fundamental distinction needs to be made. In one instance (the non-telic model), we are simply able to explain the potential observation that the LUCA had unnecessary genomic information. On the other hand, the front-loading hypothesis predicts that the LUCA had unnecessary information.
If changes to the genome are random related to fitness and only those changes that prevent reproduction get filtered out, there MUST be unnecessary information present.
Anyone so limited that they can only spell a word one way is severely handicapped!
