The recitals preceeding the articles will remain in the text. They are used by the courts to interpret the articles, in the event of a dispute. So, if it's not possible to have an article amended, then the next best option is to have a recital inserted. For example, Recital 35 of the EUCD states that fair compensation for exceptions can equal zero compensation. Because they don't carry as much weight, it's usually easier to get a recital than an article amendment.
