Oh, i think it's an interesting situation. At least potentially interesting. Assuming it was Smalley, there are a few possible outcomes:
1) Smalley and Dumbski coproduced a document arguing for Intelligent Design before Smalley died.
2) Smalley wanted to work with Dumbski, told Dumbski he would work on producing ID-supporting materiel soon, but then died.
In the case 1, it's crappy, IDCs will endlessly claim that a nobel laureate agrees with them. In case 2, Dumbski has an interesting choice. Does he say, "Nobel Laureate Richard Smalley supported ID, he told me so."? That could make him look bad, Smalley being unavailable for confirmation.
