I don't think I see how any of these two are invalided by going with
option A; Infact all i can see is the first paragraph saying either A,
or B is fine, and a conspicuously missing clause to link the pool
activation  to the allocation period. Me thinks we wouldn't be
debating if the authors :-) had included this.

Life is the educator's practical joke in which you spend the first
half learning, and the second half learning that everything you
learned in the first was a joke.
