Rule 11: "The ruleset may only be altered as provided therein."  That pretty much regulates alterations to the ruleset, so the first line of Rule 18 doesn't apply.  Changing something to be a rule is an alteration of the ruleset.  Nothing in the ruleset provides for that being done.  That r578 says one can change a charter isn't sufficient to justify the alteration to the ruleset of changing said charter into a rule.
