Thanks for clarifying.

If this policy doesn't gain consensus, I don't think it is necessary to put
the first sentence into policy separately, I agree it is a fairly obvious
thing to do. However, having it included in this policy makes it abundantly
clear that the second sentence doesn't somehow apply the resources
originally allocated from the 4.4 or 4.10 pools.  Further, the second
sentence, as written, applies to "any other resource", and that phrasing
wouldn't make much sense without the first sentence.
