Fire Extinguisher Placement

I realize NFPA says basically 5' from floor to top of fire extinguisher.  OSHA, ADA, and every professional organization I have come across in my search say the handle must be no more than 5', and they provide pictures. 

 

Here's OSHA:

Emergency Standards | Portable Fire Extinguishers - Extinguisher Placement and Spacing | Occupational Safety and Health … 

 

So when NFPA says "top", are they referring to body of the extinguisher, or the extinguisher plus gauge, trigger, inspection tag, and anything else that might be extended above the body?

 

Always love it when standards conflict.
