Love the fact "setback" isn't mentioned anywhere!  To me that indicates progress!  

In fact the whole thing seems to come from design rather than prescriptive, except for the IAQ crap.  Eventually technology will deliver inexpensive means to monitor IAQ, and those "standards" will become obsolete.  

Anybody know of software that will report on all those things (one report)?

How many pages is it?
