Bill-
IMHO you're making something complicated out something very simple. Ri max. =
the maximum value of (10/ Lw) x (the shear load in Lw/the total story shear at
that level). That's the way the code reads and it works nicely.  It has nothing
to do with counting the number of 10 foot walls (which doesn't work well at
all).
