I think the l-sit standard was for judging. It's a lot harder to say if someone's knees are completely locked out than it is to say "Just keep your feet extended over these plates, when your feet touch the plates it's over." Very definite end point rather than a more ambiguous, harder to judge one.
However, it seemed like most of the competitors didn't realize they didn't need to be straight-legged, so another communication issue from the organizers.
