5-tube chromo?

http://www.mirrabikeco.com/bikes_3_3.php

I was looking at the specs for the Mirraco Gargoyle which described the frame as 5-tube crmo. What does this mean? How does this compare with a full chromo frame? Also, anyone have any thoughts on the Gargoyle?

My guess is that the top tube, down tube and seat tube are chromo and either the chain stays or the seat stays are chromo.

I would think that the headtube, downtube, toptube, seattube, and bottom bracket are cromo.
