Do It Yourself (DIY) paradise for tube and SET project builders.

RE: you are correct

"and Crowhurst even fought for a weighting system which would have assigned higher penalties for 5,7, and 9. There is text somewhere on the net about him and some BBC guys advocating for this but were shouted down by manufacturers. and they specifically mentioned upper odd harmonics at some crazy low levels being very annoying."

I agree that that is a very interesting point, and maybe is highly relevant. Do you, as a matter of interest, know if SET amplifiers tend to have lower odd-harmonic distortions than PP amplifiers? I just don't know one way or the other; I don't recall ever having seen studies of this question.

In any case, such things should lie within the threshold of measurability, presumably, and so they would be part of the whole package of "measurements that can be correlated with observation" in the spirit of the scientific method.
