A reactive model only makes sense if you care about proton transfer. I
don't use such models but would not believe that they're magically
better than any existing non-reactive, additive model. The problem with
any classical force field is a combination of failure to account for
charge/proton transfer and polarization (we've made progress on the
latter, and though they are better, even polarizable models are not
