I knew I wasn't see things and appearantly, Bob wasn't either. Upon further 
review, there are two bandplans posted out there, the one I saw: 
http://www.iaru-regionii.org/Region_2_MF__HF_Bandplan_Annex__1_2008.pdf and 
the one that Bob saw: 
http://www.iaru-r2.org/wp-content/uploads/region-2-mf-hf-bandplan-e.pdf .
Now which is the correct one? With 40M a toss up for the time being, they 
still don't prefer AM except in designated spaces. Now I think it was Pete, 
that said about making comparisons from the last time. The one disclaimer 
sticks out from that one versus the one recently posted is this:

These bandplans are voluntary and as such cannot legally be enforced, except 
in some countries in which the bandplans are written into the national 
regulations. The vast majority of amateurs in all countries do conform to 
the IARU bandplans and it is in our own interest that it should continue to 
be this way. The plans are prepared in a democratic way with input from any 
country's member society. The plans are discussed, modified and voted upon 
at IARU Regional General Assemblies with each country (large or small) 
having only one vote. If an individual or group is not satisfied with the 
bandplans as they are and has a suggestion for improvement then he should 
submit it, with as much documentation as possible, to his IARU member 
society.

Here's my cut and paste:

7100 – 7300 2700*
All modes
Region 2 Emergency Centre of activity 2: 7240 kHz
SSB QRP Centre of activity 2: 7285 kHz
Image Centre of activity 2: 7165 kHz
AM Calling frequency 7275 kHz
Region 2 Emergency Centre of activity 3: 7290 kHz

Note the "*" after the 2700!
