Default Bonus Points

Just want to clarify my understanding regarding rules of Bonus Points-
Quote:
The team that achieves a run rate of 1.25 times that of the opposition shall be awarded one bonus point. A team's run rate will be calculated by reference to the runs scored in an innings divided by the number of overs faced.
and

Loss, but not conceding bonus point 1

Rules says nothing about totals or playing full 50 overs, so only way England get a bonus point if BD's run rate is below 7.82/1.25 = 6.26. So, even if BD scored 188 in 30 overs (188/30 = 6.27) all out, England would be deprived of the bonus point and in result BD would get it.

What is wrong with my understanding?

Bangladesh had to score 313 (391/1.25) runs to get 1 point.

Why so? The rules say Bangladesh could snatch away the bonus point from England by keeping the run rate above 7.82/1.25 = 6.26, they don't say how many overs have to be played to achieve that run rate. I know it sounds ridiculas but that is what they mean!
