Ok so, your current position is that matching an example from the 
specifically defined list of example compelling reasons is not a 
compelling reason, because of an exclusionary rule which doesn't exist 
anywhere in the policy (namely that you can't possibly solve the problem 
with deaggregation) that you're making up on the spot? A policy which, 
furthermore, would exclude nearly every MDN applicant if it was actually 
applied to anyone else. Can you explain how this is anything other than 
a blatant refusal to honor the policy as written?
