To me, "junk" implies no value whatsoever. Kikashi stones do not have no value! Part of the kikashi is the latent aji in having the kikashi stones still on the board. If they don't turn out to be conveniently useful eventually, fine, but being able to use kikashi stone aji later is a key reason for playing kikashi.

kikashi stones often turn out to be disposable. i didnt like to merge kikashi stones with disposable stones alltogether... but please don't divide once more... maybe merging is better.
just look at the mess with pivotal stones, key stones, important stones...
