in other words, that list is not exhaustive—

the direct provision of the service or amenity, the provision of infrastructure (including new construction) and subsidies that would reduce the price that students may have to pay.

That list is not exhaustive. Even a poor lawyer like me will understand that in fact it is simply reflective rather than exhaustive.
