I'd be concerned if, G'd forbid, some dope gets hurt
on the canopy, doing something stupid, and the
investigation determines that you designed it for 20
psf while the "book" said 70 psf. How do you explain
that to a judge and jury?

I hear you, but from a practical standpoint I cannot for the life of me
figure out why you should use 75 psf for a stand-alone canopy design.
