No, not at all.  The maximum numbers I give are examples.  They will be 
set for 2008 to whatever is in the ISWA.  They can change for 2009.  For 
binary, we're going as small as possible.
The only requirement I have is that fill doesn't go above 6 and rotation 
not above 16.  The variations can go as large as you need.  I have BSW 
optimized for 5 variations max, 1 bit per variation.  This information 
is needed for the SignMaker variation special command.
