I wonder if the writer of the original considered this "usual approach" of
300-2.7 Kc  most likely came about from the practice of using the same
filter to select the sideband in the exciter and defining the IF bandwidth
of the receiver.

Rather than on any real spectrum efficiency considerations.

As the the 30 Kc wide AM signals.... probably another case of the relatively
poor design of the "modern" receiver.
I'll keep using my good old Collins receivers.....
