Default Desert Worlds

So I've been lurking for a while, working on my own Traveller project. I have several questions to ask, but ... one at a time.

The first is about the De trade classification. In most of the older Traveller versions, the specification was hydrographics 0, and atmosphere 2+ (some dropped the atmosphere requirement). In my mind, that would include atmospheres A-F. In T5, atmospheres are specified as 2-9 for the De trade classification, which specifically excludes A-F. Is there a particular reason why?

I only ask because there are at least three worlds in the Spinward Marches (Zeta 2, Heroni, and Aramis/Aramis) that loose their De trade classification with this change, and Aramis/Aramis is specifically described in the CT Traveller Adventure as "swathed with a swirling corrosive atmosphere that makes life on its dry desert surface intolerable." I'm sure there are other examples to be found in other sectors.
