b. Issue both mid-point and roll-out RVR when the value of either is less than 2,000 feet and the touchdown RVR is greater than the mid-point or roll-out RVR.

I might be a pilot, and that pilot might've been a d*ck.

Another way to read that is, issue the mid and roll out RVR if it is less than 2000 and less than touchdown.  Since the mid and roll out was not less than the touchdown, the controller was only required to say runway 22R RVR 600.  The pilot was wrong and a D!ck.
