In an earlier paper, we suggested a model of weak interactions where the divergences of higher-order amplitudes are properly ordered. In this paper, we show that the introduction of Yang-Mills self-couplings preserves this ordering. We show, in particular, that the worst divergences of Feynman amplitudes are like (g2Λ2)n, despite the fact that individual Feynman diagrams diverge like (g2Λ4)n.
