Roger:

I may not have been as clear as I might have.

I referred to HC-110 dilution as being slightly more complex, because in my mind, anything that is more likely to require an eyedropper or pipette as compared to a graduated shot glass to measure volumes is at least slightly more complex than the alternative.

But I do agree that the intermediate stock approach recommended as one alternative by Kodak only makes sense when large volumes of film are involved.
