I think we have made enough progress already that either Dave's
administrative fiat or the CFJs should take care of the rest. Besides
the fixes to problems with the ruleset, we got some nice things accepted
like a way of getting points and a justice system, and it makes no sense
to undo that.

Besides, your ruleset leaves quite a
bit unspecified - for example, how is the "definitions" section changed?
Is it some sort of rule itself, despite having no number?
