Can you take LEED GA exam when you are a LEED AP BD+C?

The answer I got from GBCI after calling three times is consistantly  NO

You are not allowed to take LEED GA when you are already a LEED AP BD+C.

If you voluntarily give up your speciality (BD+C or any other) and become LEED AP than you can take LEED GA and start from the bottom of the ladder. I even logged in My Credentials and I cannot select to take LEED GA- I can only select to take other specialities.  Please comment!
