RE: [eia] access adjustments ?

    I am not sure I fully support amending voluntary access, but am not
entirely opposed either since declarations of wars can also be made out of
sequence in the case of minor country control.  I have not found anything in
the rules that state when access is granted (other than in the political
phase in general), so would it be safe to say it is in sequence "J" (after
Declaration of Combined Movement Step) in the political phase?  (Just in the
off chance its' sequence would ever be important again?)

Here's my concern with this: Do I need to write conditional access orders
for each minor I don't control, every month, just in case I end up
controlling it? That seems overly cumbersome to me. Access agreements do
occur after minor control is assigned.

This never occurred to me as an issue last game, probably because I wasn't
frequently attempting to control minors myself.
