Unequal tire pressure for 05 Forester

My '04 Forester manual says 29/28 for light loads and 29/36 for heavy loads. On my other cars I just did 30 cold all around, as they'll heat up to about 33-34 on a trip. As for light loads or heavy loads how are you supposed to judge that? Are 2 people a light or a heavy load? How about one person, 3 suitcases and 2 ice chests?
I would guess heavy would refer to 4-5 people + full trunk or towing. I has to do with increased load on rear wheels making the rear tires effectivelly smaller rolling diameter, which can be detrimental with AWD.
My manual for 00 legacy did not have this info, but I inflate rear to 40 psi when I tow.
