I don't see unambiguous support for the challenged (causal) sense as opposed to sense 1 (state). DCDuring (talk) 22:56, 4 January 2018 (UTC)
I think the distinction the two senses is trying to get at is an uncountable/countable one. The first sense is an uncountable state, the third is a countable attribute that results in that state. Kiwima (talk) 03:54, 5 January 2018 (UTC)
I often merge such split senses ("X" and "an instance of X"). We can already mark a single sense as "countable and uncountable": it doesn't need two sense lines when they mean the same thing. Equinox 05:20, 5 January 2018 (UTC)
Fine, I have no problem with that, and have merged the two entries. Kiwima (talk) 06:43, 5 January 2018 (UTC)
