True, but Ilford's tech sheets are really exceptional in the way they do real-world testing and give practical advice to provide a good starting point for beginners or advanced darkroom workers (for fine grain, try this combo; for more contrast try this one; best acutance with another; higher film speed with another, etc.). If you know how to read the curves and know what the tradeoffs are (how many people really know what their target Zone VIII density is or that fine grain with a solvent developer might come at the expense of acutance?), you can get some of the same information from the Kodak data sheets, but for beginning and intermediate B&W photographers, these intuitive descriptions in everyday language are much more useful. Ilford is also good enough to publish information about results with developers they don't make themselves, which Kodak tends not to do.
