You made some interesting statements on the Serrette's testing for AISI.  Keep
in mind that the values recognized in the code is the ultimate value with no
consideration for deflection.  Also Serrette's tested the cyclic tests on a 4
x 8 frame with back to back studs.  If we consider the movement and test on a
8 x8 frame to account for the plywood joint,  we may have a different story.
With the 4 x 8 test frame, edge distance of the fastener is no problem.
