Or, to reference an earlier example, the dimwit who thinks the determination to include options has to be in a FAR Subpart 1.7 D&F format might (likely will) be selected for that module. I fully support the idea, but I would likely be deeply troubled by the implementation details. I think that the exams should be centrally developed, administered, and controlled to mitigate cultural bias. I would keep it at the DAU level for DoD and FAI level for civilian agencies.
