I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt here and assume that the
two people in question have differing opinions or, perhaps Mr. Holtzman 
knows something at this point that Mr. Gomes does not. A policy like this
is not necessarily something that Mr. Gomes will be involved in as it doesn't
relate directly to his job, and David Holtzman is apparently higher up the
corporate ladder (according to his signature, he is Senior VP/Engineering.)

I do think that the fact that it's in their contract is enough of a reason.
I have had the opinion in the past that although NSI customers are forced to
play by their rules, NSI themselves do not necessarily always play by the
same rules. But I am going to sit tight for a little while and see what
comes out of NSI. It's true that David Holtzman may be blowing smoke up my
ass, but I am going to give him a chance to prove that he's not.
