The other engineer's incorrect assumption was that "E" simply a modified "V"
and is ALWAYS horizontal.  The IBC does not specifically say that you should
not add the second term (which starts as a vertical load) to the first term
to get a higher horizontal load.  You just have to know to keep the two
values separate, or do the research to get the right answer.
