That I was explicitly *not* what I was suggesting an enumeration of all possible cases, I was suggesting an additional document describing hypothetical case studies and whether they would be covered.  There is ample precedent for this in law (for example, much of the tax code in the UK comes along with guidance notes, which are not considered legally binding but provide people with rough rules of thumb) and does not degenerate into an attempt to list every possible case.
