Is it my fault or is JLCPCB overly pedantic when they say these are two designs?

Hi,
Yesterday I’ve uploaded this design to JLCPCB with a 13 x 13mm breakout at the top right:

Now they wrote that I have to pay extra because these are two different designs. Technically maybe  … but I mean it is tiny and doesn’t add to the overall dimensions of the PCB at all. If there were some random slot cuts in the middle of the PCB instead it wouldn't cost extra. So, why do they even care?
Or, was that perhaps the result of an automated review and I can still convince a human to let this slide?

No the problem is you added slots and row of vias which make the board mechanically difficult to handle. One option is to remove the slots and cut apart the boards yourself.

OK, thanks for the explenation. Yeah, not having to cut that by hand I would happily pay for. ^-^

For the purpose of prototyping, I would also classify this as two designs. Are you really going to spend time convincing any one for $5?
