So my intepretation of Part 2 Section 1 is correct then?

Thanks. I'll double check that.

I think it belongs in policy. I left the section numbers alone since I
would leave where in the NRPM it might go  (as it has been

I agree, should try and separate business practice from desired policy

would imagine the AC could accomplish that if they wanted to.
