I don't buy this argument. I agree it is complex, and I agree due diligence is required. But that does not mean all parts of the process should purposefully be designed to be arduous. You can have a smooth (electronic) application process and abstract away the complexity. Perhaps have a workflow system to capture more documents (electronically) rather than having random requirements for faxes, etc.
