Question of the Day - #71 Hide & Go Seek w/the Rules

2015 MN Rules section 1309.0311 regulates headroom in stairs. Exception 2 of this section addresses headroom for stairs for existing buildings but rather than stating the obvious, it refers the user of the code to the section on ceiling height in rooms. Do you feel it is confusing to direct the code user to an unrelated code section when the answer could be provided right in the exception? What do you suppose influenced the author of this amendment to locate stair headroom in a location other than the section on stair headroom?
