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.
