Documentation is only a proof of documents, if we're being picky. By that I mean there have been many HCOBs whose actual authorship is cloudy, to put it mildly.
I was working in NOTs Tech Services at Saint Hill around 1980, and I remember (I think!) the grade charts that had NOTs as a level before "old" OT4-7, then with NOTs/Solo NOTs replacing "old" OT4-7. NOTs had lotsa HCOBs, of course. Was there ever any HCOB that even mentioned the, er, retirement of "old" OT4-7?
None of the above is proof that Hubbard changed the grade chart. For that we have to rely on statements from defectors that Hubbard was in the driving seat at those times.
