The problem is, as I see it, that creating a field of study dedicated to an unidentified, unproven anything will create its own stigma and bias
UFOlogy, cryptozoology, parapsychology etc.. They all presuppose the existence of phenomena that can not be described or explained by conventional science.

Cryptozoology relies upon the same standards of evidence as UFOlogy... photos, videos, credible eyewitness testimony...
Some would say that UFOlogy searches for alien craft that do not exist. Would that be a fair assertion?
