When he said, "Some have a tighter specification for any pixel faults closer to centre", He was talking about the manufacturers themselves, not the ISO Standard. I know the ISO Standard hasn't been updated, but it dosen't mean manufacturers can't update their "own" standards on dead pixel return policy.

Not every manufacturer follows the ISO Standard, not every manufacturer follows JEDEC specification, not every manufacturer follows ATI/Nvidia's GPU reference designs..
