Although this graphic is not about bonding of service raceways, I feel it lacks a lot to be desired.

Especially knowing from experience that none of the diecast offset nipples are tight in the hubs that were evidently bolted to the top of a 3r gutter and not though factory threaded holes that capture 2 threads or more for sure.

Oh well,

Is it permissible to have the GEC to not be continuous on a communication system? What if you had a fitting listed for termination of more than one conductor?. I’m just curious.
Remember that you can identify the wire run from the system bonding point to one electrode as the GEC, with all the other runs being bonding jumpers, which do not need to be continuous with the GEC.

If there is a GEC or grounding electrode present, isn't there also going to be a GES present?

Seems the "(where present)" is redundant to me.
I tend to agree. One GEC to one electrode is the simplest possible form of GES. If there is an earth electrode that is not part of a GES, it is not a grounding electrode, IMHO.
