I think you may have misunderstood my meaning, or I didn't state my thinking plainly. I meant that FOR MY PURPOSES the format I am using is controlling of the fact that I'm using one census source per household instead of per county or other division. I simply meant that in my case function follows form because I choose for it to.
I didn't mean to imply that anyone's system -- Mills, or the National Genealogical Society, or the NEHGS or whoever -- dictates how we should do our own work.
In that, we have our own choice and work with what suits us best.
