It is proved that a matrix that maps 1 into 1 can be obtained from any regular matrix by the deletion of rows. Similarly, a conservative matrix can be obtained by deletion of rows from a matrix that preserves boundedness. These techniques are also used to derive a simple sufficient condition for a matrix to sum an unbounded sequence.
