A Proposal with P>3 is still subject to R106's "Except as prohibited by
other rules" clause in terms of a particular clause taking effect.
R849 does the prohibiting for registration before 30 days.
There's no method for a power 3.1 proposal "beating out" a Power-3 Rule
due to a conflict - R106 just straight up says "if there's a prohibition,
the clause doesn't take effect."
If the proposal created a power 3.1 rule that said "nch is registered"
then we could use rule 1030, but that's not what the clause does.
A recent-ish CFJ (can't find it this minute but I'll look harder) found that
since R106 had numerical precedence over R2140 (before R2140 was amended),
R106 even allowed for a power-1 rule to impose a prohibition on a clause in
a power-4 proposal. We added "rules to the contrary notwithstanding" to
R2140 to solve that - but R2140 still only applies to instruments below
power-3. Since everything in this case is power 3+, that doesn't help.
