CLOSETS SPRINKLERS | NFPA Xchange

In NFPA 13, 2007 edition, clothes closets in new apartment buildings that were less than 12ft2 and have no washer/dryers and furnaces/heaters, were permitted to have sprinkler protection omitted, but in NFPA 13, 2013, all clothes closets regardless of size in new apartment buildings, have to be protected with sprinklers. Was it the intent of NFPA 13 between those years to omit sprinkler protection in the clothes closets and later  sprinkler protection was  required in all clothes closets in new apartment buildings?
