Perhaps a divergence, but I suspect the people making and interpreting
these rules may be similar to those in a local bureacracy who were
surprised when I remarked that their letters saying
"We contacted X but received no reply"
would better be phrased as "we wrote a letter to X...."
IE the bureaucrat assumes that an action by them with no feedback of
successful reception is a communication rather than a bottle thrown
into the sea in the hope of a favourable current and an interested
person on a far off beach - that communication is something they do
rather than a handshake and exchange.
