Yes, there you have the weak spot in my motivation.... But that
doesn't eliminate the knowledge of Nitrox, Trimix, etc.

I do understand what you say here and I do agree with that. For fun
divers this could be confusing.

Even a better idea!

I think that this is not only a 'technical' issue, but also an issue
of all the kinds of blends that can be used, depending on what the
dive is about... This makes it complex, I think?

And could confuse people too, I think.
