Mixed Occupany Separations & Footnotes

IBC 2006

Footnote C of Table 508.3.3 states "areas used for private or pleasure vehicles shall be allowed to reduce separation by 1 hour."

Q1 Does this mean if I have an for example R & S-2 with sprinklers, the separation can be reduced from 1 hour to 0 hour?

The previous editions of the code said you could not reduce it to less than 1 hour, but had this footnote as well. This exception almost seems to allow a non-separated use without comply with the non-separated use section.

Thanks.
