Is this not just an attributive use of the noun, to be deleted in its adjective sense? --Dan Polansky 09:28, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
- I have added a sense that is distinct and not attributive use of the noun. I agree that the sense you rfv'd is suspect. DCDuring TALK 09:41, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
- Interestingly, Webster 1913 has "regulation" only as a noun while Century 1911 includes one adjective sense: "having a fixed or regulated pattern or style; in accord with a rule or standard".
