I like what you're saying about an approach to tradition that takes into account the context in which the tradition was formed. It seems that not a few leaders of institutions want to retain the foundational values established by their founders regardless of whether or not such values have any meaning in the minds of the following generations. They seem to want to preserve the old story as it was told by the founders and find it threatening that later generations would dare to question, or worse, add to the story. This can be particularly frustrating when one's loyality to an institution is questioned as a result of suggesting new perspectives.
