When mentally reviewing my own many thousands of rolls of film, I think
I can honestly say that the labs I've used have done equal or probably
more damage to frames within the "legal" frame areas (numbers 1-36),
than to the "over 36" frames. So, for me, the $aving$ of an extra 2-3
frames per roll, and the number of times that last extra frame has
either saved my butt, or been an unexpected keeper that I would have
missed, says it has little to do with "safest conclusions".
