"Coombs and Andrews surround this problem by the second
constraint, which basically says that the function to be modelled
has to be monoton in each input."

This criticism has been made before, but I don't believe that it
is correct. I think that the issue is that the last step in the
Combs Method is a sum, so that the response function may be
nonmonotonic in any given dimension, but is constrained to being
a sum of the single-dimensional functions.
