Agreed. However, in general, I'm with Ben Yousefi.
Diaphraghms and shear walls are fundamentaly different. Therefore, treating
them identically in any code is fundamentally incorrect.
At the very least, it obscures the behavior being regulated. At worst (as
in this case), it results in good looking, but nonsensical code.
