Maybe the British technical grades are fine, just because of the massive name associated with these, no one ever said 'oi wait a sec, maybe 6b not 6c'? Which would fit perfectly with a 7b+ French rating / 26 Aussie. That said, grades make no sense when they intersect with slabs.

It's similar to how only recently has Hubble been on the receiving end of talk about it being (the first) French 9a - as far as everyone was concerned, Action Directe was it, end of story, and Hubble was and would only ever be 8c+.
