That's a good observation!

I think the original idea was, "Don't solve problems before they
happen", and "When solving a problem, solve the problem that actually
happened, don't try to solve every possible problem".

Agreed!

Generally we had found that making rules wasn't an especially good way
to solve problems, but that seems to have changed over time into an
ironclad rule that we never make rules.
