Exactly, Zones are non specific. They are referrences which makes their use in quantifiable testing questionable. There's this line from Doctor Who where he's attempting to describe time travel, "People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but *actually* from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint - it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly... timey wimey... stuff." How does one plot an "ish" with any precision?

Notice Holm has two different columns for preferred reproduction densities for transparencies. That's because densities are perceived differently under different viewing conditions. The same as with prints. There's that subjective reproduction again.
