Good point, but still not sure what would be used- An R of "3" for "distributed mass cantilevered structures", or an R of "2" for "invreted pendulum" structures. Averaging these out comes up with an R of "2.5", which, again, seems reasonable to me, (back to an R of "2.2" for the '97 UBC/'01 CBC).

I read this as Inverted pendulum structure....all mass is at top of column
distributed mass cantilevered structures..... mass is distributed along the height of the column.
As I see it they have gone from 2.2 in 2001 CBC        to  2.0 in 2007 CBC  for all mass at top of column.
