Bathroom receptacles

I'm planning to convert a closet (3.5'x5') in to a small half-bath. If I'm reading code correctly, I need a receptacle within 3' of the sink, plus a second receptacle to meet receptacle spacing along walls. It seems crazy to need two receptacles in a room so small that I can touch all the walls without moving. Is there some code exception for baths or small rooms that I'm missing?

Thanks.

The wall space requirement does not apply to bathrooms. The only required receptacle is within 3' of the sink basin. It should be GFCI, powered by a 20A circuit that serves only bathroom loads.

Excellent. I'll have to read more carefully.
