Vladimir Soloviev. Isn't he one of the darlings of those pushing submission to the Vatican?
No, he's respected by us Catholics who want you to join Christ's Church.
We Catholics are in Christ's One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church, which, according to every fan of Soliev that I'm come across, Soliev left.

Maybe in hopes of ensuring that the discussion of the original post, and perhaps the overall discussion between Orthodox and Catholic points of view, would be more constructive and less 'sophistic' in nature if definitions were established for certain terms prior to arguing and kept in mind while arguing: 

theogoumen
doctirine
dogma

infallible
theological certitude

orthodox (established) teaching
catholic (universal) teaching

clarification
development
innovation

I will suggest one definition: 
Sophist - A person who employs the art of persuasion by attempting to make a weaker argument appear stronger simply as a means to win an argument, not to discover the truth.

Interestingly, some skeptics apparently used the sophist tactics of "making the weaker argument appear stronger" and/or arguing both sides in order to better illuminate truth/reality. Regarding the rest of your post, let me think on those terms for a while (I want to avoid putting my foot in my mouth if at all possible!)...

I have a question for those who believe in development of doctrine:

Mardukm used to claim that, for instance the IC was a theologoumen.  Did it rise up over time to the status of dogma? Can theologoumen become doctrine and then dogma?

I've seen the degrees of "theological certitude" that the Vatican's theologians have set up. Does something move up in theological certitude until it becomes infallible?  What propels this motion.

I am of the opinion, in case if their is a question, that if something is a theologoumen in the days of the Apostles, it pretty much will stay a theologoumen until Judgment Day (Judgement Day for those of you under Her Britannic Majesty). I can't recall anything that has gone from theogoumen to dogma (and btw, I do make a distinction between doctine and dogma).

If something is a dogma today, then it must have been "referable to the Apostolic depositum" (cf. Cardinal Newman) in the first place.

I guess this is as good a place as any to put this... I want to study this issue in more depth and have drawn up a tentative reading list. If you would, please let me know if any particular books listed are helpful or not helpful, and also what books I've missed and need to add?

I only know that Card. Newman knew a lot about it.
