No, we haven't.   We have been letting people go back and change the
political phase orders depending on what happened.

If people insist on this, then I must insist that Russia cannot take
control of Tripolitania.   After all, his political phase orders were "Russia declares combined movement with France
Nothing else" as opposed to the "depends" for the minor country control step that France sent out.  So by the logic you guys are using, Russia
already declared its non-intrest in taking control of minor countries.

And I, for one, will only send out step b. of the the political phase in
the escrow from now on with everything else being "pending".

Also, I would strongly recommend people not send out reinforcement or
other orders out of turn.
