Deloading Assistance Lifts?

My apologies in advance for a stupid question, but in a deload week such as one in the 5/3/1 program (I know, I know, the damn 5/3/1 questions!) do I also deload on assistance lifts? Your patience and replies are much appreciated.

There is a 5/3/1 thread in there strength forum where Jim Wendler answers questions.
That said, usually in a deloading, you deload everything.
My advice: keep the weight (intensity), just reduce the volume by doing about 40-50% the number of sets.
