The mutational load problem has, ironically, been used by creationists to try and show that evolution cannot work. This paper may show that a maximum limit of 25% of the genome has a bearing on the phenotype but it can't show that 75% of the genome is junk. There may be vast swathes of the genome that are functional but relatively unaffected by mutation or which is functionally redundant.
