Re: Prototype fidelity

Well, by that argument, the societies should only produce models in Prototypical scale (i.e. Proto:48, Proto:87, etc) ignoring the inaccuracies forced by 60+ years of NMRA "standards" and "recommended practices."

I don't have any problem with that!

Others who seek interoperability with heritage equipment following those standards and recommended practices will have a lot of objection with models produced that are fully prototypical accurate.

That isn't the point since the society is most likely not advertising the model as Proto 87, etc.  If they were and it wasn't, then there is a problem.  I think most modelers would not customarily expect an offering from an historical society to be Proto 87.
