Author Austen is also telling us something about the Dashwood ladies with these comments.
After all, we want them to be discerning, to have valid judgement, and to be superior themselves. When we see that they know the faults of Lady Middleton, we therefore know that they can see clearly, that they themselves do not have these weaknesses, and that we can trust them to be the ones whose eyes we see this world through.
If they were blind to folly, insipidity, and inelegance, it would mean that they might have those traits themselves.
