As it happens, FTDNA still provides the results in both formats. This
serves little purpose, except possibly for surname projects that
resisted the notion of switching over to repeat counts. I suppose there
may actually be some of those, so it is a nice gesture on the part
of FTDNA. However, it can be confusing for a new customer. At nay rate,
there's no need to go looking for the conversion tables because the
conversion has already been done, long since, for all customers.
