Thanks for your kind comments.

I still hold that simplicity in a design code is a virtue.  Sorry if my
opinion differs from yours.

I don't want to see an opportunity go by where someone from ACI says

and everyone here says "don't worry about it, we're not interested in
that."  It appears that their surveys are telling them something
