I'd be real curious about which sorts of structures show the greatest efficiencies and whether there's a correlation between the degree to which lateral loading plays a part in the efficiencies. Was any comparison done to determine where the efficiencies come in? (Column, girder, connection economies? High rise vs small structures?) Are you implying simply lower allowable design margins based on more analysis or is there something inherently more reliable about LRFD that provides a better estimate of the margin?
