I believe that this is not a right place to post this question.  However, I
am using R and found that I am able to got many valuable hints.  Therefore,
I would ask:

Does any one have the references of selecting significant level (alpha) for
F or Chi^2-test in GAM and other nonparametric model.  Some have suggested
to use alpha=0.10 rather than conventional 0.05.  I'd like to see what are
the rationals and theories of this suggestion.

Thanks in advance.
