The building lobby will no doubt claim that this will drive folks out of the city.  Of course, so will a city that cannot be kept habitable with an affordable energy budget.

Would even LEEDS be sufficient to make buildings suitable until the next major remodel, say 50 years?  I'm not sure exactly where the state of the art is, but it may be time to set the floor just barely below it.

I question the inclusion of recycled materials in energy efficiency standards.

Standards for energy used in the operation of the building I can understand, since there is a potential market failure in builders passing on inflated operating costs to the buyer (due to imperfect sharing of information). But energy used in making the building materials is already fully reflected in their cost, so there should be no such imperfection there.
