Would someone with Skyscraper engineering expertise like to comment on the "SidePlate" connections found at this web site?

Should all steel frame buildings be retrofitted?

Would this have made any difference at the WTC? Would this type of connection create any problems in high-rise construction? Is this cost-effective?

Has the term "cost-effective" changed since the Tri-trocity of 9 - 1-1 - 2001 ?

Note that this site advertises "bomb resistant" building products.

Any comments?
