Triple-DES in the rating tool

Comparing the rating guide document with the results I get from the SSL Labs rating tool, it seems to me that Triple-DES is being scored as 80% in the cipher suite score section: i.e. [128, 256) bits. Since it's generally considered to have only 112 bits of effective security, shouldn't it be rated at 20%, requiring scores of 90+ in the other sections to get an A?
