This, by the way, is Real Important.  Some of Peter's complaints
('world standard is meaningless because you don't know what the
comparison class is') are not things that would sway a PHB at all, in
my experience.  Indeed, I made _exactly_ that argument about a year
and a half ago, and was overruled by a PHB who thought it was good
sales copy.  (In case one wonders what has happened to the English
language.)
