I don't think I understand this proposal. Is this a rule? If so, it's
generally against game precedent to specify instant changes to the
ruleset in a rule; rather, we state them in a proposal like so:

{{ __Some prop__

  Change flib to baz.

  Create a rule:
  {{ __All your baz are belong to us__


It helps avoid confusion there; and moreover, prevents us from having to
grep the ruleset for all these instantaneous changes whenever anything
happens (since those changes apply /all the time/).

Additionally, what about alternate wordings, such as "This rule takes
precedence over all other rules" ? It's not in the current ruleset, but
I'm against direct s/// without good reason ;)

Finally, rule 1-14 defines attributes, which seem not to match your
use above.
