That's a curious way to look at it... by that logic, the entire forfeiture system is broken, because even after you 'cease to be a player', you still fulfill the definition of a player, and thus are one... as are all the others who left or got kicked out...

This could be Bad.

I can see a case for forfeiture working; the act of forfeiting could be interpreted as a declaration of an unwillingness to abide by the rules. Plus the forfeit rule is a Layer above the definition of a Player.

But Garbage Collection just says 'ceases to be a player'. And is a layer below the definition.
