Maybe so, but things certainly seem to get into the market without
Henry's results being *published* somewhere.

Sounds like he's overloaded, and probably starting to find the holes
in his procedures as the complexity of the things to be tested
increases.  I'd hate for him to crash and burn, it seems like he's
done a lot to raise awareness of archival issues in color
photography.  I'd also hate for the field to stagnate, of course.
