RE: OMRF (R value)

That said, we also need to recognize that you can only coax, you can't
coerce.

The Model Codes are there for the benefit of the public entity, not the
other way around. In the end, all the arguing and haranguing that goes into
the consensus that is the Model Code often simply nullifies certain
approaches to design that may well have merit. Neither the design
professional nor the public official in charge of administering the code
should have their hands tied because a faction on the other side of the
continent saw things differently.

The further benefit to that would be that we would not have to master subtle
and needless differences in design requirements when crossing the street
from county to county or town to town.
