Why is the GND pin missing in the MAX V (5M160Z) pin-out file?

Environment

BUILT IN - ARTICLE INTRO SECOND COMPONENT
Description

The GND pin is not listed in the pin-out file because E64 package has an exposed pad at the bottom of the package. This exposed pad is a ground pad that must be connected to the ground plane on your PCB. This exposed pad is used for electrical connectivity and not for thermal purposes.
