Questions on the S01 update and PDSE referenced in the MVSPATCH.JCL for MailStream Plus

Products affected: MailStream Plus
 
The PDSE is referenced in the Patch jcl called MVSPATCH.JCL zipped up with each MailStream Plus (MSP) on z/OS update:
 
//PREALLOC EXEC PGM=IEFBR14
//BIRTH01  DD   DSN=yourhlq1.ppp.OBJ,DISP=(,CATLG,DELETE),
//         UNIT=SYSDA,VOL=SER=volum1,
//         DCB=(RECFM=FB,LRECL=80,BLKSIZE=1600,DSORG=PS),
//         SPACE=(TRK,(300,5))
//BIRTH02  DD   DSN=yourhlq1.ppp.LOAD,DISP=(,CATLG,DELETE),
//         UNIT=SYSDA,VOL=SER=volum1,
//         DCB=(RECFM=FB,LRECL=80,BLKSIZE=1600,DSORG=PS),
//         SPACE=(TRK,(15,5))
//BIRTH03  DD   DSN=yourhlq1.ppp.LOAD.PDSE,DISP=(,CATLG,DELETE),
//         UNIT=SYSDA,VOL=SER=volum1,
//         DCB=(RECFM=FB,LRECL=80,BLKSIZE=1600,DSORG=PS),
//         SPACE=(TRK,(15,5))

This S01 only includes the obj and load

The same MVSPATCH.JCL is supplied in every patch PB sends out.
No new PDSE was supplied.  But the jcl step will always be included just in case a new PDSE is supplied with any update.
It is only necessary to use the part(s) of the jcl needed to install that particular update that was supplied.
