=====================================================================

Caller's Arguments:

Peekee argues that defining a Currency as Basic places restrictions
on Players, so Rule 1591 (Jurisdiction of SLCs) gives SLCs the
Rule-like ability to define Currencies as Basic.  I argue that
Rule 1911 (Basic Currencies) is what places restrictions on Players,
so nothing conflicts with its claim that only the Rules can
effectively define Basic Currencies.

======================================================================

Evidence attached by the Caller:

Rule 1911/0 (Power=1)
Basic Currencies

      A Currency is a Basic Currency only if defined as such by the
      Rules.

      Each Player has at most one Associated Basic Currency (ABC).
      Initially, Players have no ABC.  A Player who has no ABC may
      associate a Basic Currency with emself by declaring that e
      does so, and stating which Basic Currency is so associated,
      in the Public Forum.  A Player who has an ABC may change eir
      ABC by the same method, but only if:
      a) it has been at least 3 months since eir ABC was last set or
      changed, OR
      b) if the Currency which is to be eir new ABC became a Basic
      Currency more recently than eir ABC was last set or changed.

      A Player with an ABC may never cease to have any ABC at all,
      unless e ceases to be a Player, or eir ABC ceases to be a Basic
      Currency.

Rule 1591/0 (Power=1)
Jurisdiction of SLCs

      A SLC has the power to constrain the actions of Players in
      the same manner as the Rules.  However, a SLC has power over
      only those Players within its Jurisdiction, as defined in the
      Rules authorizing that SLC.

      The Jurisdiction of a SLC must be specified by the Rules,
      either directly or indirectly.  If the Jurisdiction of a SLC
      might vary over the course of the existence of the SLC, the
      Rules must specify a Player who is required to maintain a record
      of which Players are within the Jurisdiction of that SLC.

======================================================================

Judge's Arguments:

I think that what places restrictions is *the adoption of* Rule 1911,
and not the rule in itself. Once the Rule is adopted, it just defines
the reality, which is that Currencies come in two flavours, Basic and
non-Basic.
