A sheepish mistake

I see this malapropism way more often than I should, and it still cracks me up every time. This was a Contractor's question:
Are YKK and Kawneer acceptable window manufacturers under specification section 08520-2.1 as was listed under WEST CHILLER PLANT?
And the architect's response:
Yes. As long as these (or any) manufacturers can meet all of the requirements of the specifications. (Pay particular attention to mutton size requirements).
Just to clear the record:

mun·tin : a strip separating panes of glass in a sash
mut·ton : the flesh of a mature sheep used for food
