I have been using the moe430a and rae230a annotation packages, 
and have just noticed that in the current release(moe430a version 1.8.5 
and rae230a version 1.8.4) the ACCNUM mappings correspond to the GenBank 
accession numbers from the 'Representative Public Identifier' field of the
Affymetrix csv format annotation files, whereas in the 3 previous releases 
(moe430a and rae230a  versions 1.5.1, 1.6.5 and 1.7.0) the ACCNUM mappings 
corresponded to the GenBank accession numbers given in the 'Target 
Description' field of the Affymetrix annotation files.

Was the change intentional, and if so, what is the reason for the change?
