Now those are better questions. I wondered too why he was bringing up such a supposed non-issue. Could be that:
1) It was a lame smokescreen to avoid answering what the real issues are.
2) It truly is one of the hundred issues of minutiae that get discussed, negotiated and written into contracts which no one around here really thinks about (or knows about) and is why it takes some time to get a deal done and not just 'x' years at 'y' dollars.

I think both probably apply here.
