We are in the process of violating these principles!
Now we want to operate pervasively for joint economic/control optimization in this newer highly complex environment with potentially millions of interactive endpoints.
• Electric Vehicle (EV) charge management
• Inverter control for fast VAr regulation
• Local energy network and microgrid power balance, load sharing and flow control
• Multi-tier virtual power plants
• Energy/power market interactions for prosumers; Transactive Energy
• Electronic grid stabilization (FACTS for transmission; DSTATCOM for distribution)
• VER integration (wind, solar, etc.)
• Wide area measurement, protection, and closed loop control
• DER/DG integration (distribution level)
• Energy storage integration
• Responsive loads (command, price, and /or system frequency)
• Integrated Volt/VAr control (LTC/cap)
No single use case predominates; the control approach must support ensembles of new functions; utilities are being driven to select their unique function sets.

In fact, there are about 80 “-ity” type characteristics that everyone quotes*

Scalar signal disaggregation models
Directionally good but still lacking
coordination capability, so needs a better foundation/framework
Embedded market and prices-to-devices models

Definition from GridWise Architecture Council
“The term “transactive energy” is used here to refer to techniques for managing the generation, consumption or flow of electric power within an electric power system through the use of economic or market based constructs while considering grid reliability constraints. The term “transactive” comes from considering that decisions are made based on a value. These decisions may be analogous to or literally economic transactions.”

Embedded market approaches may act as a control elements in a feedback control loops, whether intended or not.
