Insert, after the fourth paragraph of the above proposal, the following paragraph:

	If moving from a flat or the roof of a flat to the surface or roof of an adjoining surface unit would be illegal because of the difference in elevation, but it is possible to climb down the building to a point that the move would not be illegal, the moving entity may do so, inasmuch as the entity has sufficient movement available to both make the climb and enter the adjoining surface unit.
