Essentially what we are looking for is a microbe that recycles thatch into SOM at an accelerated pace to prevent the need of 'dethatching and/or aerating'...
Is that a fair assessment???

I think the decomposers that work on various aspects of thatch buildup are already in the soil and we are trying to find a way to help them thrive...
Or are we on different pages with the 'reason' for the Baker formula???
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...

Baker's formula not only get's ride of the thatch, but it green the lawn, get's the pest to move or eliminates them, cuts down on the bad molds/fungus, and does it with out all the harsh chemicals.

RE: decomposers were all ready there.... If that was so then there would be no thatch in the first place in your lawn. The yeast that eats grass is already in said non-pasteurized beer.
