We've been using Limit States Design (Canadian for LRFD) for a couple up decades up here. Simply identifying whether connection loads shown on a drawing are "factored" or "unfactored" as a General Note on the drawings is pretty simple.
I find that using different load factors for different types of loads makes a lot of sense. Why would I assign the same so-called "safety factor" to loads as diverse as snow drift loads (which are basically wild guesses carried to two significant digits...) and storage tank loads where I know the mass of the contents exactly?

I'll give you a few examples of situations when "LRFD is better."
