Sure. The only sensible explanation is that it takes into account what  
works in the real world, rather than trying to require things that don't  
matter in practice, and also takes into account the purpose of the  
grammar, rather than saying "well, anything is as good as anything else".

The easy way to get this right is to do the right thing. But some wrong  
things have no real impact so don't matter. This test is smart enough to  
recognise some of that.
