Yes, you would think it would be based solely on the way the book presents things, but as you noted, they do not elaborate at all -- certainly not enough for you to be able to explain the difference in an exam question solution.

The authors seem to call out FW mod-co more because it zeros out all cash at inception (i.e. not even the EA is being paid in cash). Therefore FW mod-co would be even more likely to worry a regulator.

When people ask me about this nuance in Tiller Ch. 7, I always recommend going verbatim with what the book says -- i.e. don't try to get too cute. Just recite what the book says for FW mod-co (which is not a lot!)

In reality, a regulator would look at the facts of each specific arrangement when seeing if the criteria in the Model Reg are satisfied.
