Well, actually, there is.  Well, OK, your right, there isn't for 
cap gains schedules for personal income taxes, but when you do corporate 
income taxes, there's only a few accounting methods tht the IRS 
recognizes, and they're listed in little checkboxes on the form. (I forget 
the acronyms, MCARS or MACRS or something like that). But you get the
point.   And they vary from country to country.
