Another Distance Device Clarification

Does the latest USGA clarification on distance measuring devices speak to anything in particular?

Namely, is it an indication that there might have been a rush to approve the devices without giving the rules staff ample time to consider and clarify various scenarios that would arise?

Or are these addendums and clarifications standard issue when something previously forbidden is allowed to enter the game?

Since the announcement in September, there was this clarification on local rule wording, this announcement on the legality of such devices in USGA competition, and the latest regarding handicapping.
