Note that I am here expounding what I 
take to be the StataCorp attitude, which 
in this territory is mostly tacit in what 
they have -- or more crucially have 
not -- implemented. 

An orthogonal comment: For your problem, 
I might expect, as a non-medical(bio)statistician, 
log survival to be a convenient scale. 

With a log scale, an area graph would be 
potentially ambiguous: quite what is being
shown?
