I've occasionally seen LDF cable out of spec also (when swept up to the 
GHZ range), probably due to faulty weld seams or in one case, entire 
reels of slightly egg shaped coax.

The AVA cable, in addition to airier foam, has a thinner shield, yet 
still seems robust enough to get installed without damage if even a 
little care is taken.
