Grade rules sometimes refer to "occasional pieces"—what do they mean by that?

Occasional pieces means not more than 10% of the pieces in a parcel or shipment. This provision is used primarily to provide for acceptance of minor defects not normally permitted in a grade. These defects, while accidentally overlooked, are not serious enough to justify throwing out the piece when shipping or reinspecting the lumber.
