Such distinctions are essentially a matter of personal discretion,
and as such, I urge those on the list publishing on subjects
flight (or any area of locomotion) to discuss the topics in terms
objective characteristics, and drop (or specifically define) more
distinctions like "good", "poor", or "weak".
Such as quantification?
Quantification would be wonderful. If full quantification is not
possible, then a breakdown into discussion of, for example, continuous
flapping capacity versus soaring capacity is much more informative and
defensible than throwaway terms like "good".
