Items or require- ments thatare notspecificallyaddressed in this Standard cannot be considered prohibited. Engineering judg- ments must be consistent with the fundamental princi- ples of this Standard. Such judgments shall not be used to overrride mandatory regulations or specific prohibi- tions of this Standard.
