As we all know .. the RRS do not allow changes to terms defined in Definitions .. and the Introduction states,
"Other words and terms are used in the sense ordinarily understood in nautical or general use."
Does this mean that a word and term that is not listed in Definitions can not be further defined?
For instance, "Sportsmanship" is not defined in the RRS. Without fully defining Sportsmanship, could a Prescription, NOR, SI, CR state that some specific action will be considered "unsportsmanlike"?
I think the above would be against the rules. That any attempt to define a term used in the RRS or add definition to a term not listed in Definitions is in effect changing Definitions (by adding a term to it) and thus not allowed under RRS 86.1
Also, Introduction's contents are also rules listed in RRS 86.1 and therefore Introduction's, "Other words and terms .. " above is a rule that is prevented from change.
