Isn't E-Prime just using a sledgehammer to kill a fly?

E-Prime seems to me to be overly complicated compared to the alternative of developing our thinking to the point that all participants in a communication know that their contributions are subjective. i.e., when I say "She is beautiful" I know, and expect others to recognise that I consider her beautiful, not that she is objectively beautiful.

Just a thought.
