I was profoundly disappointed when I saw that S-PLUS 4.5 now provides “Type III” sums of squares as a routine option for the summary method for aov objects. I note that it is not yet available for multistratum models, although this has all the hallmarks of an oversight (that is, a bug) rather than common sense seeing the light of day. When the decision was being taken of whether to include this feature, “because the FDA requires it” a few of my colleagues and I were consulted and our reply was unhesitatingly a clear and unequivocal “No”, but it seems the FDA and SAS speak louder and we were clearly outvoted.
