Use of Outdoor Air Reset in OS/EPlus Chilled Water Loop

Appendix G Section G3.1.3.9 Chilled-Water Supply Temperature Reset (Systems 7 and 8) requires that chilled water supply temperature be reset based on OA db temperature according to the schedule: 7 deg C at 27 deg C and above, 12 deg C at 16 deg C and below, and ramped linearly between 7 deg C and 12 deg C at temperatures between 27 and 16 deg C. Among the setpoint managers available in OS 1.4 is the Outdoor Air Reset SPM which I think can implement the foregoing schedule according to the logic shown in the Engineering Reference. However, my concern is the description for this SPM which says it is an outdoor air strategy for supply air temperature and does not mention it can be used also for nodes where water is flowing. I tried running my model using this SPM in my chilled water loop and the results viewer shows that for OA db temperature fluctuating between 21 and 30 deg C, chilled water supply temperature is kept between 7 and 10 deg C which is what I want to see. Looks okay but is there something I am not aware of? Will the LEED reviewer find this okay?
