Now the ACTA appraisal document is out in the open it's clear that USTR's concerns were with people realising they are abusing process. The fact they appear to have abused the FOIA process in order to conceal their failure is all the more offensive.

One great and smart way to reduce the (legitimate) cost of satisfying freedom of information requests is to publish the data online in machine-readable open formats in the first place. Hopefully the guilty parties here are considering that and not just buying more photocopiers.
