2009 IRC 12' prescriptive shear walls

CODE CHANGENot sure if this is new NEWS to only me so I thought I would pass it on.  Prescriptive (none engineered) shear walls can now be up to 12' tall using a multiplier.  This change should help increase the usable floor space on tall walled plans used with attic and lofts type structures typical on this forum and John's plans.  I see it doable for RV storage buildings as well.  Thoughts?
