    I agree that the rules are very explicit about sieges being all or nothing - all the available corps must take part or none can.  So there is no reason not to maintain that rule if people want it.  But how in the future will we deal with a situation like the one that came up this month when Austria paid for 3 corps to arrive at Turin, but the 4th one foraged using unused movement points?  Would we say that the entire stack is unable to lay siege that turn?
        Pretty much.  Everett and JJ both seem in support of the rule that way and unless someone wants to take a strong stand to change it, I don't think there is anyone committed to seeing it altered.  So, I expect it will stand as is.
