fair enough, then why does Carl not just simply use a standard product?
and say to his customer: hey guys, I'm using standard X, your problem
from now on.

I don't want to get into this, but it was my (mistaken impression) that
Carl was not happy with any of the standards. Or maybe he just
wanted to have advice as to which one to use...

It would seem to me, that the thing to do, would be to ask the
customer, which standard he would prefer and be done with it.
