Dude...Rule 14 regulates how a Player forfeits, and it takes precedence over Rule 18.  That means your action wasn't legal in the first place. So the question wasn't really the legality of your action...the question was whether the game state could be sufficiently altered in the short run by an illegal move that it couldn't be quashed by legal means.
