John -
 
I feel compelled to ask, why were you recommending steel framing?  I would have thought it was because it was the best system for the application.  Just because you're now upset at the AISC, is masonry suddenly a better engineering solution to the problem at hand.
 
Just a thought.

  I have guided many architects away from masonry bearing walls in favor of steel framing; but no more.  I don't want to be seen as unreasonably contentious; merely practical.
