But the first-time user isn't necessarily the author
of said .cls file. He/she may be a new postgrad,
just starting in a High Energy Physics group somewhere,
and will almost certainly acquire some locally customised
files from those already there.  That is certainly
how things were at Royal Holloway : I can't imagine that
things are substantially different at any University
that you have experienced.
