Does the Demaree method of swarm control require two queen excluders?

I've been learning about this method and I don't understand the need for the second queen excluder, under the top hive body.

Quick summary of the method: for swarm control, put the queen in the bottom hive body, queen excluder on top of that bax, then two supers above the queen excluder. Then another queen excluder on top of the supers, followed by a second hive body where you place all of the open brood.
