Does MailStream Plus support Periodical Flats with In-County high density prices and the 25% rule DMM 207.13.3.4.c

Product Affected:  MailStream Plus™
For Periodical Flats mailings, MailStream Plus™ does not offer the presort logic to qualify pieces for In-County high density prices when there are addressed pieces for a minimum of 25% of the total active possible deliveries on a carrier route.  This is under DMM 207.13.3.4.c:
 
13.3.4 Density
Walk-sequence price mailings are subject to these density standards:
a. Once the minimum volume per carrier route is met, there is no further minimum volume for the 5-digit ZIP Code delivery area. Walk-sequence price mail need not be sent to all carrier routes within a 5-digit delivery area.
b. Except under 13.3.4c, at least 125 walk-sequenced addressed pieces must be prepared for each carrier route receiving mail claimed at the high density price. Mail for carrier routes of 124 or fewer possible deliveries can qualify for the high density price if there are at least 125 addressed pieces for the route or if pieces are addressed to every possible delivery on the route. This mail may also qualify for the saturation price, subject to 13.3.4e. In-County price pieces may also qualify for high density prices under 13.3.4c.
c. Mail may qualify for In-County high density prices when there are addressed pieces for a minimum of 25% of the total active possible deliveries on a carrier route. If a route contains addresses both within and outside the county, the number of pieces addressed to the entire carrier route will be used to determine if the 25% requirement has been met. However, for such carrier routes meeting the 25% requirement, only the pieces for that carrier route that are addressed to addresses within the county in which the original entry is located may qualify for the In-County high density prices
