The proposed rule is only Power-2, but it purports to redefine what it
means to publish a message, arguably conflicting with Rule 478.
This might fall under R754's new "clearly intended" clause, but I'm skeptical.
In order to avoid interpretations where the rule just simulates the
effect of the author publishing the message, I chose an action that is
secured at Power 3.

Judge Walker's Arguments:
I judge FALSE, concurring with the caller's arguments. There is a
conflict between proposed Rule and R478 as the new Rule redefines (or,
at least, adds to the definition of) publishing a message. R478
explicitly secures Publicity and then allows the Registrar to change
it without objection, meaning that this is the only way it can be
changed (as per R2125 (c)): as a direct action of the Registrar.
