Weren't the Spoken supposed to be non-human exalted?

Except perhaps liminals which require a human corpse.
The Spoken are a weirdo exception — they aren't human, and a human could never Exalt as one of the Spoken. But for all the classic Exalt types, Exigents, the other new types introduced this edition, and the optional canon Exalted, you gotta be human.
