I rule this TRUE.
This question is independent of whether or not Primo Corporation is a
player. Our rules permit BobTHJ to act on behalf of Primo Corporation
for the same reason they permit Bill Gates to act on behalf of
Microsoft - they are External Forces, existing outside the game and
thus not subject to our rules.

If asked, "Can the player BobTHJ act on behalf of the player Primo
Corporation", I would say NO on the grounds that Primo Corporation
should not be a player; however, as it has already been ruled that
Primo Corporation is a player, there is nothing in the rules that
prevents a component of a player from presenting the actions of the
entire player, any more than the rules forbid my hands from acting on
behalf of myself.

TRUE. At least one version of it did:
While this prop did not use conventional delimiters, it was still
clearly indicated as a proposal.
