I'm going to be nice and interpret 219:1 as satisfying the first part
of 219:1.9 vacuously, since there is no previous valid rule.  VALID.

+1.0  Follows theme
+0.5  Newbie bonus
-0.1  219:1.9 is redundant (Regular Ordinances already require rules to
         obey all previous valid rules)
-0.1  219:1.9 attempts to refer to a nonexistent previous valid rule

+1.3  Total
