In response to:

>>Good on 'em. It's not going to be a cure-all (at least the ASME Code 
interpretations haven't been) but it will be a valuable source of 
information and a means for settling differences of opinion that don't 
require an immediate answer. I presume the interpretations are to be 
considered official committee interpretations.<<

It needs to be appreciated that the SEAOC  Seismology Committee does not
maintain any Codes or Standards.  In addition when it is used in model
codes the "Blue Book" is not referenced rather the text finds its way into
the text of a code change proposal.

In this context it is not sure what impact interpretations will have other
than as background information.
