They didn't exclude analog by accident or because they forgot to mention it in their list: they went through the effort and explicitly excluded the medium from the contest. Compare this to sports, where everyone who qualifies can participate in the Olympic games, but the Special Olympics specifically exclude athletes without disabilities. Maybe Nikon reasons the same way ...
