Caller's Arguments:

"and SHOULD be used when a rule includes a term otherwise." -- MMI

Has this specific aspect of the First Speaker rule been thought about
before?

========================================================================

Judge Murphy's Arguments:

1) SHOULD indicates "this is non-bindingly recommended", not "this
   definitely happens unless someone carefully considers (etc.)".

2) Any such obligation is either trivially satisfied (if Michael
   exists) or vacuous (otherwise, Suber forbid).
