I think it is important to put into the Rationale the statement that
this is DFZ-growth neutral, that is, if you believe that it IS 
DFZ-growth neutral.

By inserting the statement that you feel it's DFZ-growth-neutral into
the Rationale you are showing that you have responsibly considered the
impact of modifying the qualification criteria on the DFZ.
That makes all the difference in the world.  Lacking that it makes the
reader wonder if this proposal has really been well thought out.
