Bill's reply, less the sarcasm, is pretty close. Building Officials have a problem with any group who propose code provisions which are intended to force the public into hiring the proponent in order to comply with the code provision. In the case of conventional framing, engineers are not required to design the structure provided the code provisions are followed. There is a provision which allows the building official to require parts of a conventionally framed structure to be designed by an engineer. For us to present a code change which results in more of these structures requiring design by an engineer would be considered as an "engineers full employment" provision. In other words, the provisions are self-serving.
