No disagreement here, the ATSC document is simply a guideline offering 
certain minimum performance suggestions deemed to be helpful for designing a 
DTV receiver. It makes no attempt to specify how that task could or should 
be done. In the case of multipath performance it offers a number of field 
captures for use in developing /testing equalizers, if one chooses to 
utilize them. A wide variety of receiver designs ,with widely varying 
degrees of performance, could be compliant(wrong word).
The problem that ATI point out is that there is no way for a consumer to 
know that a receiver even meets this very minimal performance guideline.
