Me, I like the idea of a guarantee!  But I do think that for the peace of 
mind of the Group and your purchasers it is mandatory to have some 
unambiguous language defining "properly designed manner" and "reasonable 
limits".  As for using the design specs as a definition, isn't it common 
practice to use MMC caps at AC voltage levels equal to their DC ratings?  If 
so, everyone fails to meet your guarantee criteria.  So all this will take 
some thinking about what you wish to guarantee.  As one with a passing 
knowledge of legal language, I'd be happy to help the Group come up with 
phrasing that meets your needs (without charge, of course) if you contact me 
off the List.
