The cap proper is much less important than the linked % of HRR enforced via the escrow process. I note all the PA proposals have attempted to soften or delink the % of HRR for the majority of the new CBA.

That's the real core issue. The cap itself is secondary, helping to keep the salaries from straying too far from the HRR %.
Bad choice of words on my part. I should have said "linked percentage" and I do believe there is a strong possibility that it is his goal.
