    I see you and George still hashing some things out.
    I think Frank's work can be mentioned in a paragraph on how "lunars
    enthusiasts are still developing and testing refinements... Frank Reed's
    method(citation of Nav-L discussion thread)(citation of Frank's lunars
    website) is similar to ..... but differs in ...".  This avoids a
    "presentation of original work", and keeps things within the realm of
    verifiability.  After all, Frank has not yet published the method, and we
    haven't seen published evidence that other practitioners have put the theory
    to the test by presenting the data from a carefully-designed set of test
    cases.  And we haven't seen an exhaustive literature search to find out if
    the exact same thing hasn't been tried before.

    I don't know whether he's published outside of Navlist, but you could cite
    the archives, if that's permitted.  Frank may jump in here on that..  I
    inserted mention to Frank's work just as a guide, not as suggested text for
    the article: the guide was a rough, suggested outline.
