I forgot to add that, I'll do another try later.

This issue is addressed by the new paragraph, isn't it? Anyway I don't
care about not having it in the guidelines, I can put it in my personal

It is not really an exception, since this exception is already accepted
since FESCO ratified the original proposal (unless I missed something).
It is more a precision.
