Deity dilemma revisited. Poo.

I thought the question about deity AC posed in my recent post had been a mistake on my part due to a "logic error." (Thanks to plansedragon) But, after I got home from work today I went back and opened up my books to have a look. Then I read this, and while my conclusion hasn't changed, the reasoning has.

"Deities who aren’t outsiders have their normal natural armor bonus + their divine rank." In this sentence, the emphasis is just on the outsider status, not the outsider HD.

My question now is this: are HD that an outsider possesses, even if they are HD from a class, considered "outsider HD?" This doesn't seem quite right to me, but, that does seems to be what they are implying after you take my quoted sentence into account...foxsable hinted at this. I just thought that if a being became an outsider only the racial HD of the being would become outsider HD...

Gah, I still wonder if there is something I don't understand about HD... or was the entry just poorly worded?
