It's not that complex. I have my documents that I'm interested. You 
have yours. Walter perry has his. Robin Berjon has his.  They are 
similar in some respects and dissimilar in others. Your results may 
be applicable to my needs (or Walter's, or Robin's or other peoples) 
or they may not, depending on how closely the formats you're 
measuring map to the documents we use. However, since we can't look 
at your documents there's no way for us to tell. We simply don't know 
whether your results are meaningful in our environment or not.
