    My point is that it might be in the best interest of the manufacturer to only report the 2-cycle result if the adjusted-2-cycle is a "more appealing" result then the actual-5-cycle.

    Yes but you would not want the manufacturer to be sneaky about its numbers. So I say keep it honest and wait for better battery technology.

    That's certainly true. Nothing really stops the manufacturer from doing both tests beforehand and then picking the best result to report. Although for 2012 and after, the 2-cycle is no longer an option.
    Because there are tons of crazy people in this world...
