It's all relative. There is little data on the performance of deco algorithms for repetitive dives. The ScubaLab chamber testing is among the little available. DSAT and Buhlmann 45/95 would be considered liberal. Suunto RGBM, Buhlmann 45/85, and PZ+ would be considered moderate/middle of the road, Mares and Cressi RGBM would be considered conservative. Algorithms with adjustments were tested at their most liberal setting.I gave examples of suunto which uses rgbm as well, depending on user setting, it gives up to 22 minutes less ndl for his average depth. He stated that his mares was set to minimum conservatism. Had he used more conservative setting, which would be more suitable for his personal fitness and diving conditions, this would be probably a decompression dive.
Not to belabor the point, these were not aggressive profiles
