My feeling is that this is far too long and offputting. "If they have to
specify all this in nitpicking detail, it's because they've got people
who are trying to game the system and they don't have the guts to throw
them out." I'd much rather have a mostly-benevolent dictatorship which
is able to treat cases as individual matters than a huge set of rules
which still won't cover all eventualities.
