Sorry--it's a typo. I meant "puts" not "buts." I didn't know that a validator couldn't downgrade a rating, but actually there should be no reason for him/her to do that, since he/she should be improving it or, if it's in bad shape, reject it. I was suggesting that maybe the book was originally rated Fair and the validator forgot to upgrade it, but apparently that isn't the case.
