AC-loss modeling is an integral part in the research of scientists pursuing activity in the field of numerical modeling of high-temperature superconductors. This topic is very relevant, though not sufficient, for advancing the maturity of high-temperature superconductor-based applications in power and energy sector to a status where commercial applications flourish. Not all the scientific activities target to this naturally, though it is the key essence for this applied physics community to exist. The scholars in this field keep producing scientific articles in a relatively unstructured way, as in other fields too. We feel that some future directions for the field could be laid and the research could be classified. This kind of constructive structuring could enable us, the members of the community, to focus more of our effort on advancing the understanding and modeling needs of AC-losses for the applications. With this described aim in mind, this paper poses four questions to AC-loss modelers and answers them from the subjective viewpoints of the authors.
