(Sorry for delayed response). I guess it is difficult as on one hand  
it would be "good sales PR" for them to do that, they perhaps don't  
benefit as much financially doing it. I don't yet know their detailed  
prices so if they are cheaper overall to CEDAR maybe their margins  
are lower.  Some form of accommodation though would have been good. I  
guess the cost to offer it to CEDAR was lower though and thus easier.
