Despite the stylishness of (2), I prefer the legality of (1). [After
all, we're supposed to adhere at least to the letter of the ROs.]

I therefore propose R211:A:

      For the purposes of calculating the validity of Rules posted in
      this Round, and the eligibility of Players for this Round, no time
      shall be deemed to have passed between midnight GMT at the
      beginning of Monday, 7 July 2003, and midnight GMT at the
      beginning of Friday 11 July, 2003.

      This Rule temporarily overrides the Regular Ordinances for Round

Voting commences immediately. I vote FOR R211:A.
