Home link: why is the technique to add a home link an additional technique?

Proposed Change:

Change the additional technique to a mandatory technique

Response from Working Group:

No techniques are mandatory. Any technique that is sufficient to meet the
success criterion may be used.

The technique to add a home link was made advisory because it is not
considered sufficient by itself to satisfy success criterion 2.4.7. Just
locating the home page, while helpful, is not enough to orient the user
within the set of web units because the user has no information about the
organization of the web units.
Response from GSW:
I am still unclear as to why this is not under the "Sufficient techniques"
