I like the 5%, 10%, 15% ranges for about the reason posted by the person above me. 3% does not really feel like a discount, plus its a number thats really annoying to divide by, you get all sorts of odd remainders and partial reductions. With the current rates you will not see a reduction in doff costs until you are 2-3 tiers into the mine or your SB is tier 3 projects. Until then all the discounts are below 1, unless its rounded up you end up with no change in the Doff costs. 5% feels like an actual discount and divides into most of the costs easily.
15% at tier 3 would feel like a real reduction. People I've talked to feel that 9% is such a small reduction its not worth it. They will work on it for the consoles but consider the cost reductions just too small to add value.
