oDesk Payroll: An Agency or Not?

I just noticed that when a client posts a job and stipulates "No Agency Contractors," being on oDesk Payroll means I no longer have the option to apply. I think oDesk should rethink this policy, because working under oDesk Payroll doesn't really mean we're a part of the same type of agencies on oDesk that have teams and managers. Maybe I'm being too simplistic here, but I feel there's a big difference between oDesk Payroll as an agency and other oDesk Contractor Agencies.
And although working under oDesk Payroll comes with a small fee - it's well worth it; however, contractors who work under it should have the option to apply for jobs that stipulate no agency contractors, since in essence, we aren't really. We can pick and choose our own jobs without having to check with an agency manager.
It can't hurt to bring this up for discussion, anyway. Just my two cents
