I think you just stepped over the line from weird to absurd. "any real

Unfortuanately, this is Nomic, not common sense. What is written is important, and in this case there is a very real difference between 'any real number' and 'a
value of any real number'

Either is a valid interpretation according to the rules; game custom, precedent, common sense, spirit of the game, etc. all suggest that it works the way we've been using it.
