Again, just scrubbing.

I think you may be right on the transitivity issue.
If so, this could negate Rainbow's Estate, which I don't
think I want to do.
At present nothing precludes it, but I don't think it's prudent
to allow any action not precluded by a Rule.
There is much precedent for 'giving to' in various Game
Actions since I joined.

Activated Abilities in 1-2 covers 'Players' holding an Object
or being held by an Object. Perhaps an amendment stated as
'An Object holding or being held by an Object' is in order.

Got pens?
