(1) The phenological allocation was coded in a very precise way. This helped to build confidence in the approach and to close the C budget but it makes the routine hard to digest. This first part could probably be simplified with only small consequences for the allocation itself.
(2) The rule of Deleuze and Dhote is a linear function. Consequently, larger trees get more C to allocate. When a tree becomes really big, the rule results in large trees growing unrealistically fast. The linear rule should be replaced by a saturating rule.
(3) Jointly calculating intra-stand competition and allocation requires linearisation of the equations to derive an analytical solution. This was feasible for the linear rule of Deleuze and Dhote but may become overly complex when an power-function is used. To overcome this issue GPP could be distributed according to a power-rule (replacing Deleuze and Dhote). Rm could then be calculated for each diameter class and finally Cs, Cr, Cl and Rg could all be allocated at once following the current allometric rules.

After closer inspection of the equations, point 3 is very simple to implement. The power of deleuze and dhote was externalized (r4968) and is being used to optimize tree ring growth.
