Why does the Gen 1 service manual recommend 3mm fork height (top of fork cap to triple) for USA models and 6mm for "others"?

Because it's likely that US riders don't have the experience that ROW (rest of world) riders would have? Take the tiered licensing in EU for example...
A few extra mm giving a slightly more "twitchy" handling might spook US riders more easily. We're like those goats that freeze up when they get scared.

That's the most logical reason I could think of.
