Yeah, but t-p-u is the recommended method, IIRC.

I agree that devref is canonical. The hard part about listing some
examples is that I wasn't sure where to stop; there aren't that many that
are really in use. Listing a couple of examples is most of the work of
listing the four that we actually use (plus mentioning the security ones).
