I'm not disputing that the panel sizes are different -- just that, as shred pointed out above, both 1U formats fit into exactly 1U of rack space, provided you use appropriate rails. With both formats, the size of the total package (panel + rails + tolerances) comes to 1.75 inches. They're both 1U.
The difference is that one format (Pulp Logic/Erthenvar) was designed exclusively around one type of rail, while the other (Intellijel) works with multiple rail types.
