Campaign: 601 Content of Provisional and Nonprovisional Applications

Preliminary Classification

MPEP 601 state: "All applicants are requested to include a preliminary classification on newly filed patent applications. " This should be expounded upon - Why is the Office making this request? IMHO plenty of applications get misclassified by the Office and thus are not examined by the most appropriate Examiners. It may be in an inventor's best interest to help steer applications to the most appropriate class.
