Ken, I'm with you except where you say, "By definition, dives outside of the strict definition of 'recreational' (deeper than 130, exceeding deco limits, diving on non-stanbdard air mixture) qualify as 'technical' and mandate appropriate training and skill."
That makes it sound like you're saying a dive to 70 feet on 32% nitrox is a technical dive. Wouldn't all the major agencies call that a recreational dive? Obviously one needs appropriate training to dive nitrox, but I wouldn't think that pushes it into the category of a "technical" dive. (Semantics? Maybe.)
