Yeah, it's broad enough to be widely applicable and understandable but not so specific it can't be contextualized to edge cases.

For example, I lived a lot of my life working-poor and would probably hit the conception of "middle class" by some metrics a few years ago, but my other perceived identities prevent simple things like owning a house from making me comfortable with police...or a hell of a lot of other state-entities.

Absolutely. I think that to frame middle-class as a strictly material thing is too reductive to be all that useful to an anarchist.
