Default Aging in T5

I've been reviewing character generation, in preparation for "recreating" one of my characters in T5 - Dalthor Et Magera. I'll be posting the complete process, rationale, and history in a different thread. It'll be specific to my campaign - see the link in my sig if you want a bit more detail.

Looking at the aging tables, them seem a bit "dated" to me. Considering the technology and history of the Imperium, and looking at our current society, I have updated the life stages for my campaign.

Human Life Stages

No	Life Stage	   Years	Terms
0	Infancy		   0-1		1/2	
1	Childhood	   2-9		2
2	Adolescence	   10-17	2
3	Young Adult*	   18-29	3
4	Adult		   30-41	3
5	Peak		   42-53	3
6	Mid-life	   54-65	3
7	Senior		   66-77	3
8	Elder		   78-89	3
9	Retirement	   90+
This reflects what I see today, plus some fudging based on what I think is the minimum that would be available in the far future.

I'm also including the aging table I use IMTU for the Varans, my sophont race. If you scanned the Mikhail sector, and read Varan history, the table below reflects the aging benefits of the Winnowing.

Varan Life Stages (IMTU)

No	Life Stage	   Years	Terms
0	Infancy		   0-1		1/2	
1	Childhood	   2-9		2
2	Adolescence	   10-17	2
3	Young Adult*	   18-33	4
4	Adult		   34-49	4
5	Peak		   50-65	4
6	Mid-life	   66-81	4
7	Senior		   82-97	4
8	Elder		   98-113	4
9	Retirement	   114+
Do y'all feel that these would be logical updates to aging, based on what you'd expect to see in the Traveller universe?
