Default Where Citation name comes from?

I guess this thread should be in Everything else or Off topic forums but anyway.

Does anybody know where PassLabs (www.passdiy.com) Citation amplifier name comes from?
Is there some coinciding with Harman Kardon Citation amplifiers?
And is there some dealings with TIM distortion or so?

So Nelson, I like to hear your answer!

Please read the actual Pdf paper in the Passdiy amp archieves.
It is a modification of the HK Citation 12.

Yes, I just found it and I read it.
But more stupid questions. Is there some coincidence between Harman Kardon Citation XX and Citation 12?

Citation XX is quite old amplifier.

Yes there is. Both names come from the same Marketing Dept. To receive a citation means you are mentioned for merit or good performance. An amplifier called Citation therefore has more chances to be considered "good" with increased sales.

Unless it's a traffic citation, in which case you were bad. But I don't suppose they had that definition in mind.
Perhaps the amp got caught speeding, and being such a 'fast' circuit...oh, never mind...I need more sleep, I'm getting loopy again.
