hard to say, maybe the FM is just really great at that time control?

Kramnik was a 2600 FM and jumped straight to GM from that , he skipped IM !  I played a 2500+ FM once and he is now a GM .

Perhaps a more interesting question is who is the highest rated IM/NM/FM. Who has a very strong rating but is missing the norms?

IM is the second highest title, then FM, NM, last is CM.

The 2600 FM would certainly have the norms then...

Out of the list of all the masters mentioned in the list IM is the highest. 

Of course GM is the highest title, but out of the one's mentioned in this topic IM is the highest.

Kramnik was a 2600 FM so appaerently he didnt have the norms for either IM or GM yet , but Kasparov got him into the Olympiad where he had such a tremendous performance that he gained the GM title , he skipped IM as have a few others .
