To have standing on the argument,one would need first to gain personal understanding of the specific vehicle in question. Otherwise he would only be able to compare "ratings".
I think you would at least have to agree that we now at least know what the towing standard that each vehicle had to perform to in order to achieve the rating it has been given - unlike the good old days when each manufacture did their own tow test and it was anyones guess as to what the bench mark was & how the vehicle performed with lots of back seat driver speculating on it

Still doesn't conflate rating with capacity.

Nope not entirely but at least we now know that they have the capacity of their rating which we did not know before.

As you know more than a few trucks, as well as SUV's and small cross overs had their ratings down graded in the lead up years to the test becoming the standard which some might suggest may mean they never had the capacity of their published rating of the past
