Don't get me wrong though, I do see your point.  Typically before I would use
large fade distances.  At least I have realized through this exercise that it is
optimal to set the fade distance very low and adjust the light intensity itself
to get the best correlation: the range that is incorrect becomes negligible in
size, as the x/FD term gets larger, the effect of the extra 1+ term diminishes.
