Why use 8x multiple for Berk and 10-11 for MKL?

8x for BRK is on pre-tax income (and probably too low) and 10-11x for MKL is on Ventures net income.

I pulled 10-11x out of a hat. I haven't really gone through the trouble of trying to value Ventures but soon enough it may be material enough to put some effort into it.
