[Trace-users] Cooling Only (Design) Schedules and LEED Energy Modeling

I am working on an energy model for a LEED project using Trace, it's my
first one, and I was going through the error comments Trace generates and I
saw a warning about using the Cooling Only (Design) schedule. Essentially
the warning was that ASHRAE requires schedules to be reflective of actual
occupant uses, and cooling only schedules wouldn't be realistic. 
I use this schedule all the time when using Trace for HVAC loads but I'm
nervous now using it from energy modeling. Will this get me a review comment
if a reviewer see's that I used this schedule, or is this schedule pretty
typically used in an energy model?
