I disagree with this reasoning.

If B submits its vote, and this submission is facilitated by C, and B's
charter does not allow A a voice in this vote, clearly A is not
submitting their vote. Further, per Rule 1-3, "An External Force is
anything which exists independently of the game. That is, it would still
exist if the game stopped existing, and would still exist if the game
had never started existing." Primo Corporation, for one, easily meets
this definition, as it is based in agoran law.
