    I think this should not be included. Having the same rule in multiple places can lead to confusion. If Appendix H is the rule, then just refer to it.

    It already created confusion and H is only a summary, not a article. The article is necessary to be consistent. One also has to ask if it is convenient for competitors to flip back and forth through the rulebook trying to find all this information.
