A TC Question

I have been doing a little work lately in trying to understand the
Independent Text-type theory for evaluating textual problems.
Although I understand what Harry Sturz is doing with keeping the
text-types independent and of equal value, and his pushing back of the
Byzantine type to a much earlier and respectable date, I am curious
as to exactly what he does with internal evidence in his evaluations.
How does he deal with conflations or readings that appear to be
mixtures? Perhaps the simplest answer is that he doesn't consider
them to be conflations or mixtures, but I was interested in seeing
whether any of you NTTC folks had any insights into the strengths and
weaknesses of this method. Thanks.
