error in 1997 SBC???

Table 2213.1B Nominal Shear Values to Resist Wind Forces fro Shear Walls Framed with Cold-Formed Steel Studs and Faced with Gypsum Board.
 
footnote 2 calls for minimum 5 1/2" deep studs and 3 1/2" deep track.  The equivalent footnotes for tables 2213.1A and 2213.1C (both of which provide values for OSB or Structural 1 sheathing) consistently refer to 3 1/2" deep studs and track.
 
Is this a typo, or am I just missing something?
 
Thanks
Dan
