AFAIK, rotting is a basic thing you try when you get handed an encrypted message in a riddle. (obviously, its never used for real anymore... Except in hotline =D). Anyway, I too doubt that theres another ROT in this puzzle.
...Besides, some words (like "L C C T G L W") look rotted sometimes. Letter frequency & such.
