Re: HYB: height classifications

This is a great explanation and I'll bet right on target, too.  It reminds
me of the saying "if it ain't broke don't fix it".  So if there's no major
problems or confusion with the current classification system then why
change it?

So I suppose until the number of intros of LAs and SPUs and so forth
reaches the levels of MDBs thru TBs, it's unlikely (and unneccessary?) to
establish height classes?
