Hi David and all

Totally ignoring documented Standards to make a buck is NOT going
forward. 'Creativity' and all the 'what the Internet is about' stuff
does not mean you should ignore a Standard, especially in business. 

Fuel companies love diluting petrol with Ethanol nowadays because they
can save/make a buck, but would you call that 'going forward' when you
discover your engine life has been drastically reduced? 

I would suggest that the better way to go would be to stick to the
standard, lest the company go broke because their 'creativity' sent them
that way.
