I've an article I wrote on A/S judging that speaks to the issue as along 
with other things it discusses the concept of reasonable substitution.  I'm 
not sure if it is posted in the Flori..  It raised a bit of a dust up here 
in this kingdom when it was published.  If anyone wants it I will post it to 
them.  Have you seen my semi-Swiftian piece in the Flori regards my 
recreation of a 12th century hole?

Side note, I will be out of touch next week. I'm off to do some field work. 
I'm sampling the beaches of the east coast of Florida,  one sample set every 
mile.  Next week is the rest of southern Brevard County as well as Indian 
River and possibly St. Lucie counties.  Doing some of this on four wheelers 
varoom varoom.
