Models?  Wasn't the 9300 basically an instruction-compatible model of
the S/360 Model 20?  I think the 9400 was the bottom end 360/30 model
compatible.   Calling the Model 20 a "member of the System 360 line" has
always been a bit of a stretch in my book.

So small cheese in terms of sales proposals, but interesting
nonetheless.  Thanks!
