I disagree. A rule like this to allow for flexibility with innovative/progressive designs and alternatives that meet the same intent as the original rule.Item c allows for use of things that are not in the code, so they would be impossible. For instance, suppose someone came up with a practical room temperature superconductor. would not be allowed because it is not in the current NEC. So it would otherwise be impossible without some kind of special permission.
