That would be my guess, since the right side of the standard assembly (no ambi lever) is flush with the right side of the slide, and there's no protruding "right side" that can easily be pushed leftward. Nor is there a right side lever to be pushed down (and inward) for decocking.

They didn't make a big deal of it during subsequent classes, but just said that the decock-only assembly required the use of the .45 lever in the 9/.40 guns.
