That's not a legal Action, as it changes the gamestate and no rule gives
you the power to create rules.

Actually, it looks one does. Rule 216 says that creating a rule is an Action, and r1896 says that any player can perform any Game Action at any time.

I think this bug comes from an earlier version of Proposals - once upon a time, a proposal was a list of Actions changing the game. Unfortunately, I guess we forgot to fix r216 when we redefined 'Action' to be 'a thing players can do'.
