I just checked the index of both books for 'braid" and "bonding 
conductor".  There is no listing for "braid," and on the pages 
listed for bonding conductor I don't any reference to "braid." I 
also did a quick check of the indexes of Ott, one of Morrison's 
books on grounding, and books by Clayton Paul and Bernhard Keiser. 
None of them include a reference to "braid" outside the context of a 
cable shield. 

I concur with the several analyses cited here that braid has serious 
shortcomings as a bonding conductor.
