That's not how I read it. I think what they are trying to accomplish is 
everything not voice and not CW is digital. CW is still "CW", and everything

6.6, which at first appears troublesome (it says only one transmitter per band) 
is really business as usual, since under 6.3, each mode is counted as a 
separate band.

The big changes actually involve packet and VHF. No more digipeating for
