WPIs and Gauge

What are the TRUE wraps-per-inch numbers? I've been delving into this as a way to provide more information for knitters and crocheters to substitute yarn, or plan projects better.
However, I have found a discrepancy between the WPI's out there.
For example:
here is a standard supplied by a maker of WPI gauges (sevenyaks on Etsy)

WPI Standards:
18 or more wpi – Lace weight
16 wpi – Fingering weight
14 wpi – Sport weight
12 wpi – Worsted weight
10 wpi – Bulky
8 or less wpi – Very bulky
