More drift talk

I have long thought that the recalibration of the UBC to set the earthquake
formula to strength level was a unfortunate move.  It confuses things.
Useful terminology and patterns of thinking  we all learned in the past now
become useless.  For instance, unfactored loads used to be service level
loads.  Now it is a mix of service level loads and ultimate loads.
