True.
In my opinion there's absolutely no reason to be holier than the pope when it comes to the U23 "cut-off" for the development team. Many riders, especially from "non-traditional cycling nations", simply need more time to become ready for a pro contract. Sign 5-8 U23 riders by all means, and then add any non-U23 riders that you want to keep in the project that aren't ready for PCT yet.

There's also a lot to be said for having, not really a father figure, but more of a big brother team mate. Like Luke Roberts did at Stolting or Dan is doing with the main team. Someone to show them the ropes on and off the road.
