Beware the clicking of FAQs, lest you be locked into an interpretation you disagree with.
Within the context of Pathfinder as a whole, I disagree. I can rule anyway I want at my table regardless of what the rules or the designers say. It would not be the first time I housed-ruled something almost a complete opposite to what the "official" rules stated. If this was the only option to play, then most rules arguments, IMO are just exercises in gaming banter, for personal enlightenment, or for additional perspectives.
However, my focus is with regards to PFS specifically. IMO, table variation regarding the implementation of vague rules that govern actions is different than those that directly govern character building. In the former, one can just perform other actions rather than the one the GM will adjudicate differently than the way you want. However, the latter can actually invalidate an entire character making it [virtually] impossible to play. That is why, IMO, this matter needs some FAQ assistance even if that is not the ruling you want. At least then, you can be assured of consistency from table to table.
