Exposure control is one regulatory factor that affects cost. Safety provides for the significant cost incurred.
There in no probability that regulatory limits will be relaxed, and if the rest of the world is a precursor, we will observe dose limit reduction (not soon).
Even if limits would be relaxed, an increase to 20 rem annual limit in no way could ever be justified.

Ted Rockwell has a graph in his book, Creating the New World, that shows costs up >10 times as regulations increased >10 times.
I assumed that costs and regulation would be much less when based on it taking >10x exposure to do harm. Apparently many other factors.
