Obviously I know that.
My thinking was that you make the commitment to the player by extending the QO, so knowing it cannot exceeed that money by x% would give a better basis for the decision whether to make it or not (obviously this could be over 200%, I have not done any statistics on this, it was just a thought on making this more planable for the clubs). An arbitrary number of 3.5m for everyone doesn't have anything to do with how Fraser is valued either.
As I said though, this way makes perfect sense too.
