I used to have access to the complete MIL STD library. There's a MIL STD for
toilet paper (including testing) and toothpicks, to name a couple.

That's part of the cost of the high cost of military equipment. Certification
and testing does not come without extra cost (and the smaller the purchased
lot, the higher the per-item cost, so the oft-mentioned $600 hammer was maybe
out of a lot of five or some hammers).
