Yes I agree that this needs clarifying
I have always understood that riding primary when the rider can match the speed of the moving traffic or because they need to due to a hazard (Narrowing, Parked cars etc) is evident from the inception of the National Standard. Other terms such as Normal riding position meaning left hark back to cycling proficiency and are best avoided.
In this time when our towns and cities are looking at how cyclists are accommodated and 20mph are being considered and rolled out. teaching people to be part of the traffic (and pass queuing traffic on the right, not left) makes encouraging cyclists to ride as part of traffic claiming the space they need is more crucial.
