Default Multifarious consideration

A well designed responder will implement SELF_TEST_DESCRIPTION.
Hi Eric.

Yes, while I agree that's true, would it not also be true to say that a well designed standard would foresee this, as it does (to some extent) with required PIDs?
I have here, a responder that complies fully with the standard yet does little to enhance it's reputation. My aim is to present the controller EU with a good experience without making excuses for compliant responders, which is the situation I find myself in. Obviously, in the described situation, the controller will invoke the poke & hope modus operandi.

We're in danger of accepting more holes in the standard than a conventional tea bag.

I concur with Mike and would favour mending the standard.

Time to get back to work....
