But rule 18 takes precedence over rule 129.

PS.  Everyone vote for my proposal 308.  I know it looks like only a minor
cosmetic change, but it begins the process of making some much-needed
low-level changes to the ruleset.  Basically it makes the requirement that
players follow the rules part of the definition of a player, not some
extra thing tacked on to the ruleset.
