This issue was addressed at the first revision regarding 
noncombustible/limited-cpmbustible vestibules that contain no combustibles can 
have the sprinkler omitted.  This is certainly a reasonable allowance so has a 
high likelihood of remaining through the second revision but you never know 
until the stove is shut-down and all the cooks have been run out of the kitchen.

I sent this earlier and had a failure to deliver so if it some how makes it 
through the server, forgive the repeat.
