The document you link to seems like a summary that may not have all the
details we would want. For instance, I note that the rules in the
database right now include DFS for most of the 5 GHz rules but the
document makes no mention of it.

I found the following document which "recommends" both TPC and DFS for
the 5150 - 5350 MHz range (and for ranges which require TPC we cut the
maximum EIRP in half):


I haven't yet tracked down anything similar for the other ranges, but I
would like to so that we'll have a full picture of the requirements. I
did find another "guideline" document with a similar summary table which
also includes the 5470 - 5650 MHz range:
