Depend on your interpretation of FAR 43, appendix D I guess, but other than that you are correct, because unlike the RV12, none of the other models have a factory published inspection checklist. It was required for S-LSA, and is required to be supplied to E-LSA builders.
A major reason for inspecting the tank finger screen (besides that it can be) is that the RV-12 is much more likely to be self fuel from jugs with a much higher probability of inducing undesirables.
