I think he wanted to keep the camera settings around the baseline f/8 and 1/250s mentioned also in the article. (With these he 'd have gotten good depth with the 28mm and properly frozen action). With f/stop and shutter speed constant, he had to push or pull his TriX to the ISO that would give the appropriate exposure value for the light conditions. Hence the labels.
That's speculation of course but I don't think he was the kind who stressed about tonality over content.
