Nels-
The "should not" statement does appear in the 1991 NDS Commentary.

Subject:	Lag screws in withdrawal from end grain

The 1994 Edition of the UBC says "lag screws should not be loaded in
withdrawal from end grain.  When this condition cannot be avoided, the
tabulated nominal withdrawal value, W shall be multiplied by the end grain
factor, Ceg=0.75."

The 1991 edition has a similar statement.  I don't find the 'should not'
statement in the 1991 NDS.
