That's an interesting point, but consider this:

The Public Display of the rules when this was submitted did not
include the rules which we're voting on in the coming voting period.
Thus if 130 takes effect it repeals any rules which are added to the
ruleset before 130 becomes effective; the state of the game is changed
to match the Public Display that didn't include them.
