Allow more?

Gene Quinn at IPWatchdog has posted about examiners being given direction to 'allow more applications'.

This is presumably related to the initiatives that Acting Commissioner for Patents Peggy Focarino spoke with him about a couple of weeks ago regarding the Office's recent initiatives (such as by making better use of interviews) to identify patentable subject matter earlier in prosecution (which has always been part of an examiners' training, but which they apparently needed to be reminded of).
