Contact symbol and second contact

Hi everybody,
    On page 
showing correct and incorrect spellings of Flemish signs, I came across 
the following on number 4

I have a question which isn't directly related to what the lesson is 
explaining.  In the correct spelling, there is a contact symbol for the 
hand and chin but no contact symbol for the two hands touching.  Why 
isn´t there a contact symbol for the two hands touching?  Should the 
contact symbol always be omitted when the symbols overlap?  Or should 
the contact symbol be omitted when the contact isn´t in the center of 
the sign?
