[CQ-Contest] RTTY WPX and NA Sprint CW this weekend

This is right in the middle of the "meat" where the bulk of
CW sprint QSOs typically take place. I am not familiar with
the RTTY bandplan. How come it is so low in the band. I
thought RTTY was typically done from 7070 and up. Is this
to accomodate Europeans who have a phone band at the high
end of the spectrum?
Really sounds like we should switch the dates back so that
the CW Sprint is always on the first weekend. Of course then
we end up conflicting with the FOC contest :) Aarrrgh!
