I for one would welcome Limited Stare Decisis in this nomic.  Nevertheless, 
I see nothing wrong with waiting until a consultation is pondered to 
determine the legality of actions.  The gamestate (at the time the action 
was performed) either changed, or did not changed, depending on its 
legality.  It is the job of consultations to decide whether or not it 
actually changed.  

The problem happens in Agora when it turns out that the AFO didn't *really* 
win, but everyone had been playing as if it had although it was too 
controversial to be ratified.

Ratification being like
