Player in their first FIDE rated tournament scores 0.5/5 with Rp=1387 but no rating. Why?

According to the latest FIDE rating regulations:

FIDE Rating Regulations effective from 1 July 2017 wrote:6.3 In a Swiss or Team Tournament:
6.31 For an unrated player’s first performance to count, he must score at least 1/2 point.
...
7.14 A rating for a player new to the list shall be published only if it meets the following criteria:
7.14a If based on results obtained under 6.3, a minimum of 5 games.
7.14b If based on results obtained under 6.4, a minimum of 5 games played against rated opponents.
7.14c The condition of a minimum of 5 games need not be met in one tournament. Results from other tournaments played within consecutive rating periods of not more than 26 months are pooled to obtain the initial rating.
7.14d The rating is at least 1000.
7.14e The rating is calculated using all his results as if they were played in one tournament (it is not published until he has played at least 5 games) by using all the rating data available.
In the South Shields FIDE rated blitz in early July one of the players playing in their first FIDE rated tournament scored 0.5/5 with a performance rating of 1387 but still appears as unrated. Note that 0.5/5 is their score against FIDE rated opponents. Their score in the tournament as a whole was 3/9.

Why?

Are there some additional unlisted regulations?
Ah, but I was so much older then. I'm younger than that now.

Would it not be more sensible for you to address your question directly to the FIDE Elista Office, or to the Chairman or the Secretary of the FIDE Qualification Commission?

Probably, but I've passed it on anyway.
