IMHO, PP 129 doesn't confirm to needs-based assignment and dismissing it
for that reason is reasonable... but PP 130 simply *reserves* space for
future needs-based assignment, and doesn't change the needs basis for
the actual assignments under it at all. Furthermore, it makes "needs
based" assignment more reasonable for organizations that come with a
genuine need but "too late" for the existing reserved transition space.

In this case the author doesn't particularly care whether it is one
sentence or a long-winded explanation, but thinks that for one of them
(130) the analysis may be a bit off.
However, given the icy reaction to 130 on the list, it doesn't make
sense to waste everyone's email inbox space with the petition process.
