The pool was probably compiled manually with the emphasis on new types like the warfare specialists and doffs of the pre-existing types just thrown into the pool to ensure there s enough useless stuff in there.. I suspect the pool used for the fleet vendor uses only a small subset of the doff's available through the pre-existing channels, certainly if it was compiled manually..
