Title: mix and match - repost

is anybody out there?
footnote f for ibc 2003 table 1604.3 allows reducing the wind by 30% when considering deflections. it seems implied that in order to use this reduction, one needs to be using the design procedure presented in the ibc (the simplified one). *** i know the ibc references asce ***

is it wrong to use this reduction in combination with the detailed procedure presented in asce 7-02? it seems like it would be since i think the simplified procedures gives higher values than the detailed procedure. maybe the footnote should say "0.7 * W when using the simplified procedure and 0.85 * W when using the detailed procedure".
