When measuring THD we don't care much where distortion is generated and
why. That's is infact a manufacturer (or owner) problem to be solved in
the case the overall THD is too high and concurrence does better or
neghbours HAM "blame" at you (and you care) if you leave your
transmission as is.
As well as for THD, if we can finally measure what's the final
transient intermodulation distortion we have available an objective
number that evaluates the produced effect of keying.
What eventually has to be modified, is again a question that comes
after it has been established that there is something bad to fix.
