I think you've missed the point.

I didn't say "standards", I said certification requirements. Those are, at least in the US, Federal Regulations, not standards. They set numerical requirements on rate of occurrence of dangerous failures; those are given qualitatively but they are assigned quantitative equivalents elsewhere (oddly, in the acceptable means of compliance).
