Why was Bruni allowed to race in GP2?

If I’m not mistaken, only Giorgio Pantano, Antonio Pizzonia and Gianmaria Bruni have “stepped down ” from F1 to race in GP2.
My question here is: though Pantano did not officially complete a full season in 2004 with Jordan, Bruni did complete a full season that same year with Minardi. Does anyone know why that exception was granted to Bruni? Was there a special loophole that Coloni took advantage of to put Gianmaria in one of their cars in 2005?
Not that he would want to, but we all think that Kimi could not race in GP2 because of the current series regulations. But, now that he has announced a sabbatical from F1 for 2010, wouldn’t it be awesome to see him battling it out with the younger guys in the GP2 Dallaras?
