The only way to read into that is that it is something they are expecting to move significantly on. Wouldn't be surprised if it is 8 years or so for maximum deal and a break allowing a signing bonus to not count in the 5% rule.
I see your point...but I think the rule is intended to avoid the super rich owners from giving out 13 year deals for 100 million or so and the last three to five years total, 2, 2, 1, 1, 1 million to bring down the cap hit. That's cheating the system in my opinion.
