The "and/or" in R1698 does seem kind of unclear. What the rule also included a definition: To make an "arbitrary rule change" is defined to mean earning 5 coins. That seems to change the meaning of R1698 so that it's no longer talking about actual changes to the rules. Is there any precedent about whether that kind of thing (a lower-power rule changing a higher-power rule by defining a term) works?
