And I agree with this I'm just saying that trying to get the rules absolutely air tight is a fools errand. I think we need to get as close as we can and then try to explain the intent of the rule so that when a situation occurs that isn't explicitly addressed we are comfortable with letting the people on scene come up with a reasonable ruling and not fret too much if there is some variance in interpretation.
