In response to Appellants' argument, the Examiner cites to Ex parte Parks for the proposition that "a lack of literal basis in the specification for a negative limitation may not be sufficient to establish a prima facie case for lack of descriptive support." Ans. 6 (citing Ex parte Parks, 30 USPQ2d 1234, 1236 (BPAI 1993)).
...
Moreover, and contrary to the Examiner's apparent understanding, Ex parte Parks instead supports Appellants' position.  The mere absence of literal support for the negative limitation "does not, in and of itself, establish a prima facie case for lack of adequate descriptive support under the first paragraph of 35 U.S.C. 112."  Ex parte Parks, 30 USPQ2d at 1236.  Stated differently, the Examiner does not meet the burden in rejecting claim 24 simply by noting, without more, the lack of literal support for the negative limitation. 

Parks, Ex parte, 30 USPQ2d 1234 (Bd. Pat. App. & Inter. 1993) 2173.05(i)
