CFJ2276a hinged on the numerical precedence between the rule
defining voting limit and the rule allowing changes. The relative
numbering has changed and the issue should be re-examined.
Judge BobTHJ's Arguments:
There are two possible interpretations of R2156: the first is that it
creates a static voting limit which can not be changed, and the second
that it initializes a dynamic value voting limit which can then be
modified as described in other rules. R2156 gives us no clear guidance
on which of these interpretations should be used. However, other rules
(such as R2260) would seem to suggest that the latter interpretation
is more in line with the intent. Since one interpretation would lead
to a conflict between rules and the other would not the correct choice
is to use the latter. I judge TRUE.
