Hey, I agree with you. Rules *should* be re-evaluated on a continuous basis. And anyone that disagree with them should fight against them. [I came of age in the late 60s, early 70s and I've done my share of trying to change rules:)]
I'm just saying that since this rule *does* exist, it would be unfair to let a group of people off the hook, no matter how good the cause, because then pandora's box has been opened and everyone will want the same treatment.
And what I was saying is this rule is one of the few that are cut and dry.
I'm not taking sides here, just explaining my thinking. I get distressed enough over the subjective rulings as it is.
