The increasing page count with time was imposed upon us by the RFP, and 
we therefore used it in our cost estimates.  However, the fact is that 
the average page count per RFC has remained remarkably close to 30 over 
at least the past 20 years. (A fact that we told the IAOC about, but 
they chose to ignore).

Thanks for the careful proof-reading.
