I seriously doubt it. I certainly wouldn't include it (and don't) in my CV.

Likewise. Look, I don't have time to track down a heap of evidence for
you; either accept my argument, or don't.

I'm really not that invested in this. I gave my suggestion for the
best solution. You're entitled to your's. Either way is more-or-less
fine by me.

But I do feel strongly that page count is beyond scope. Do we want to

HTML document? I think not, particularly when there are more important
issues to worry about.
