Ohlins Road & Track e90 spring rates - they look strange to me, what do you think ?

Hi,

I asked Ohlins about their Road & Track suspension spring rates and they gave me the following information:

Front: 400 lb/in (70N/mm)
Rear: 343 lb/in (60N/mm)

I am no expert in spring rates, but from what I read on this forum, the rear spring rate is really low, this means that the rear springs are soft. What do you think ? I am thinking of getting a good suspension setup like the Ohlins and as I am trying to learn more about the spring rates, this setup comes up as surprising compared to others.
