    i have to admit that with plug tops, i generally twist and double over. the ferrules with the plastic shields tend not to fit, and i can't be arsed buying the "plain" ones. i have been known to tin the ends though.

    Yes that one where no definition is given for multiwire, fine wire or very fine wire. To me that covers all conductors beyond solid core does it not. Whatever it refers to the requirement is to fit suitable terminals or suitably treat the ends.

    Any of the listed conductors that you judge to be at risk of "inappropriate separation or spreading" in the proposed connection - would shall be my take :)

    Still can't see any problem fitting 1.0 mm flex in a plug top without ferrules.
    It's not like the terminals are massive nor the grub screw.
