If it reaches to the mutawatir level it has to be reliable.

Can you elaborate how it has to do with the topic I am talking about?

Your call to re-evaluate is not new, people have been researching further re-evaluating Hadith sciences for centuries and especially in our days. People are spending their life times, analyzing, comparing and evaluating texts and chains. Big scholars and researchers are providing different views and opinions on a huge amount of topics pertaining to Hadith sciences, what's authentic and what isn't.

I try to even benefit from tools of western and non-Muslim historians to offer verdicts on narrations and historical text. However, everything you mentioned above isn't really applicable to Shia Hadith sciences, since Shia are way too limited in their resources whether the compilers of their narrations or the biographers of their narrators.
عَلامَةُ أَهْلِ الْبِدَعِ الْوَقِيعَةُ فِي أَهْلِ الأَثَرِ. وَعَلامَةُ الْجَهْمِيَّةِ أَنْ يُسَمُّوا أَهْلَ السُّنَّةِ مُشَبِّهَةً. وَعَلامَةُ الْقَدَرِيَّةِ أَنْ يُسَمُّوا أَهْلَ السُّنَّةِ مُجَبِّرَةً. وَعَلامَةُ الزَّنَادِقَةِ أَنْ يُسَمُّوا أَهْلَ الأَثَرِ حَشْوِيَّةً

Religion = simple & clear
