This is what I have hoped would happen. However, isn't this against the code 
adoption process, where localities must adopt no less stringent code 
provisions? Unless, the rigidity analysis in the UBC, as L.A. sees it, was 
not meant to be applied to wood diaphragm. Otherwise, it would go against 
City of L.A.'s "No rotation or more than 15% cantilever in wood diaphragms"
