I see three possibilities:

  1) Local groups _need_ this new policy to guide them, but those
     local groups that happen to lie outside will have to suffer.

  2) Some groups need this policy and others don't, and, fortunately,
     only American groups need it.

  3) No group really needs this policy, so the Board can simply
     apply it in the US, where US standards make it convenient
     for the Board to apply it.

Have I missed anything?
