Just a general question about legality. The statement that the score changes
won't be legal until the 23rd/24th seems to imply that the score changes are
presumed illegal unless a rule specifically makes them illegal. Does this
mean that all actions are considered to be illegal until they're made legal,
and if so, wouldn't it make more sense to assume that all actions are legal
unless made illegal by a CFJ or other rule or something like that?
Otherwise, everything we do is illegal until 1 nweek after we do it, when it
retroactively becomes legal.
