Rule 1590/0 (Maintainer of SLC's) requires a Player to be specified to maintain
a record of the content of a SLC.

Common sense dictates that this assignment should be synonymous with
assigniong the task to a specified Officer.

Since there are procedures within the Rules for ensuring that (as near as
dammit) any Officer is always a Player, this Judgement should hold.

Decision of Judge Doug:  TRUE

        I Judge that the statement is TRUE and grant the request for Injunction.
H. Rulekeepor, please make the requested annotation. 

        Since an Officer is always a particular Player (by 1006(5)), 
specifying an 
Officer satisfies 1590's requirement to specify a Player.  I would like to 
caution the Players that specifying an Officer is sufficient, but _not_ 
necessary, to specify a Player.  (The two concepts are _not_ synonymous.)

        I attach Rule 1590(0) and 1006(5) below as Evidence:

Rule 1590/0 (Mutable, MI=1)
Maintainer of SLCs

      For a SLC to be legally authorized, the Rules must specify a
      Player who is required to maintain a record of the content of
      that SLC; this Player is known as the Maintainer of that SLC.

      The Maintainer of a given SLC must provide a copy of it to any
      other Player who requests it, as soon as possible after the
      request is made.  E must also provide an updated copy of the SLC
      to all Players within its Jurisdiction as soon as possible after
      the SLC changes for any reason..

Rule 1006/5 (Mutable, MI=1)
Defaults for Officers

      An Office is a position of authority or responsibility
      established by the Rules and held by a Player, who is called an
      Officer.  At any time, for each Office there shall be exactly
      one Officer who holds it.

      A position of responsibility or authority is only an Office if
      the Rules specifically designate it as such.  An Office only
      exists as long as there is a Rule in force which specifies that
      it exists.  If the Rule or Rules which mandated the existence of
      an Office are changed such that they no longer do so, that
      Office ceases to exist.

      A given Office has whatever duties, responsibilities, and
      privileges that the Rules assign to it.
