Yes it will force you to do so if you do not design the bracing for Overstrength (Omega x V).
We rely on UBC 2213.8.5 (Majority of our projects)
We routinely design most wall bracing for overstrength as a matter of simplicity and ease (Since usually
this amplified calculation allows you to fall in exceptions category).
Since we do have relatively very small dead loads in our roofs the economic impact is most of the
time not of concern. Note also that we must design the connection for of the bracing for the
lesser of ...... (2188.8.131.52) and it becomes really time efficient to use the overstrength and go on.
You could say that we are trading a small amount of material for deadlines efficiency.
I hope this helped.
