I don't see how the manufacturer would know the final service intended for the structurals. The engineer who specified the members should have known whether or not they'd meet spec. evaluation for possible web crippling clearly calls for an engineering judgement. If the standard of care for a supplier is to look over an engineer's shoulder and comment on suitability maybe you have a small corner of a case, but I doubt that any supplier is held to such a standard.
