This paper presents a laudable and entirely conventional (non-MOND) analysis of the masses of LSB disks which are required to support the spiral density wave patterns observed. The conventional inference is of massive disks - near (or occassionally in excess of) maximum disk, with M*/L well above what one would expect for stars. In paper [38], I had pointed out that if MOND were correct, analysis of the stability properties of LSB galaxies in these terms would lead to just this inference. This constitutes another successful MOND prediction.
