as i recall from my years in the semiconductor device biz, 
specifications like this are written for conditions where the device 
is giving near "optimal" performance.  it doesn't mean other values 
won't work, but it's sure a good place to start.  if your idea of  "optimal" 
performance (e.g. rfi immunity) is different from the mfgrs' idea of 
"optimal" performance (e.g. low drift) then the circuit 
configurations can be different.  but everybody knows that already.

sorry for rambling... the topic just brought a "specsmanship"
