The real question I have is that we are progressing toward a world where fixture wattages will be in the hundreds as compared to the thousands. At some point, the 20 amp 12/3 SO standards are going to look insane. I am reminded of my last trip to Disney where I observed a 22 gauge Christmas light strand plugged into a 12/3 cable by itself.
LEDs are going to change almost everything we assume in current theater. Although current distribution systems for these fixtures parallel what we are using for movers, it seems to be an environmental waste of resources. Perhaps branch circuit structure needs to be reexamined. Maybe a new 10 amp standard could be in our future, with its own connectors, cables, and OCP systems.
