Unless you're speaking from personal, firsthand knowledge of the situation, I'm not so sure about that. The restriction has been lifted. And they are already allowing in lat transfers into the 1840 designator at the O-3 and O-4 as a general matter; I know an O-2 personally who was just selected for lat transfer from 1810 to 1840 and the 1840/CWE community talent manager is at least an 1840 O-4 (that may not be his actual title, but its something along those lines and that's his job) . . . the talent manager was an O-4 in 2015 and I don't know how senior he was then, so he may be an O-5 now. He says that he's a part of the "control grade expansion of CWEs." According to him, the CWE community recently brought in 4x O-4s, 1x O-5, 1x O-6, with multiple more being brought in at the O-3 and below pay grade. There was/is an August redesig board to bring in more people. It looks like they are well on their way to expanding the CWE field.For now this should be considered a fluke. There aren't yet any viable plans to make an 1840 career path to O-6.
