If it''s the number he has to work with for 230/240v, the corresponding number at 200/208v would be use in whatever calculations he's doing.

Don't forget to calculate how much power (va) you'll be able to deliver per dollar each way, too.

1ph wiring, where 3ph is practicable, is starting to look more expensive; and redundant.

Depends on the J-box, but I usually opt for 1ph runs vs 3ph runs. I wouldn't want to have to make any extra connections.

There are even edge-firing LED ribbons available.
