As the AC is not a wholly disjoint entity from the PDP, their behavior 
vis-a-vis the PDP should be governed by the PDP. And in fact, much of 
their behavior is.

If they do not share this view, why the intention to include this rule 
as a revision in an upcoming revision of the PDP? As an FYI? Is the PDP 
an FAQ on the PDP?
