In neither is
DR for dynamic range listed and
TR for tonal range
let alone DRL!

Many I understand but never seen used before. It shows

How old are these lists?

Too many three letter acronyms. Why can't people just say what they mean?

I see all this crap in beginner threads too... people firing acronyms at them. We're not in some stupid management meeting... just speak English.
