This, I take it, describes the current state, which doesn't make clear
whether this is intentionally that way (and can't be changed), or
just happens to be that way because so far it didn't matter.

Because of ...?

I.e. if one party sets one rate, and later another party sets
a different rate, things are going to work fine? If so, why would
the different parties need control over the rate in the first place?
