directed brokerage disclosures

p147 of V1 states that it is only recommended that “The Investment Manager should provide a description of the product or service obtained through Brokerage generated from the Client’s account.” Doesnt this clearly mean that a member doesnt actually have to explain a directed brokerage agreement, since its only recommedned? And does this not contradict this statement on p150?-“For such multicomponent products or services, the Investment Manager, consistent with the Soft Dollar Standards’ ethical framework, must narrowly construe the component parts that are necessary for the products or services to directly assist the Investment Manager in the Investment Decision-Making Process.”
