Who exactly are these "people"? If guide books don't contain these grades (calling them "ratings" is only serving to confuse you more...) then there is no reason to learn them.
As both JimTitt and rgold pointed out, (almost) nobody uses these grades in a cragging guide any more. Even the fact that Don Mellor used them is now pretty much moot, seeing as the now 2nd edition of the guide that replaced his (Adirondack Rock) is coming out relatively soon, and only contains specific mention of the grade for the few IVs on Wallface.
