Very interesting company here ! ....

State of Wisconsin regulations, at least from two years ago anyway, does NOT allow any *main* structure to be brazed.... only welded joints are allowed. A non-structural member can be brazed however.

I'm not a brazing expert by any means, but the requirement seems to be saying that to achieve really good brazed joints requires more skill and is harder to come by, than let's say oxy-acetylene or TIG welding. Just a guess on my part.
