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  
in this kingdom when it was published.  >>>

Perhaps you are speaking of this file in the CELEBRATIONS AND EVENTS  
section of the Florilegium?
Judging-AS-art    (14K)  3/25/05    "Judging Arts and Sciences  
Competition; Some
                                        Thoughts and Suggestions" by  
Ld. Daniel
                                        Raoul Le Vascon du Navarre'

What kind of dust did it stir up? No one has sent me an opposing  
article to post.  And I would consider such an article. If anyone of  
you disagrees with an article or message in the Florilegium, you do  
have the chance to get your research/opinions posted, although it  
will have to meet similar standards.

Daniel also wrote this article in the same section:
Documentation-art (12K)  8/22/04    "Documentation - a Quick and  
Painless Guide"
                                        by Ld. Daniel Raoul le Vascon.

<<< 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? >>>

In the PERSONAL CARE section:
12thC-Hole-art    (19K)  8/22/04    Reconstruction of the hole in a  
                                        toilet seat by Ld. Daniel  
Raoul le Vascon

<<< 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.  >>>

Are you doing this alone? That's a lot of miles.

<<< 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  
varoom varoom. >>>

Oh okay. Then I guess you aren't trying the entire coast in one  
week.  Are you talking about four wheel ATVs? or SUVs?
