You would know far better than me. My sense is that underwriters rely on whatever standard suits their fancy. Iíve had surveyors and underwriters that focus on propane. Iíve had others, faced with the exact same setup on my boat, not even bat an eye. The application of these standards seem almost random to me as a simple consumer of insurance.

My bet is that if some authority states this is the standard, many underwriters will unthinkingly use it as well.

Why go fast, when you can go slow.
