Wow.  This rule sounds a good deal more restrictive than the USAV
rule.  That "but are not limited to" clause is not present in the USAV

I'm curious as to how this is interpreted in the Federation.  Is the
NFHSA less tolerant of individual screens than USAV?  By my
unenlightened comparison of their written rules, it appears so.
