Your thoughts?

220.14(K) Banks and office buildings. In banks or office buildings, the receptacle loads shall be calculated to be the higher of (1) or (2):
(1) The computed load from 220.14
(2) 11 volt-amperes/m2 or 1 volt-ampere/ft2.


Change to read:

220.14(K) Banks and office buildings. In banks or office buildings, the receptacle loads shall be calculated to be the higher of (1) or (2):
(1) The calculated load from 220.14
(2) 11volt-ampere/m2 or 1 volt-ampere/ft2.

Substantiation: This change is proposed to create uniformity with the rest of article 220, after the 2005 NEC decision to replace the word ?computed? to ?calculated?.

?A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds.? (Emerson) But Emerson does not explain the difference between foolish and wise consistency. When it comes to technical writing, consistency is never foolish. Clarity is more important than variety. I like it too.
