UPDATE: This, from the DCMS website, is also a little confusing:

Despite not falling under the definition of relevant publisher, any publication that is exempt as a micro-business as a result of these amendments could still choose to join a regulator and receive the legal benefits otherwise only available to relevant publishers in the regulator. That means protection from exemplary damages.

If you’re exempt as a “micro-business”, aren’t you supposed to be protected from exemplary damages anyway?
