You seem to confuse game state (well defined properties such as scores,
rules, players and such) and game custom (vague metagame interpretation
of the rules).
The status quo persists regardless of wether a refused/undecided CFJ
modifies game custom or not.
Of course this is just my own very personal interpretation of "game custom".
