The problem that Daniel is talking about is that Article II, Section 3,
paragraph p states:

  Kingdom Officers are authorized to issue handbooks or policy manuals,
  detailing procedures and policies for their areas of responsibility. In
  the event that a Kingdom officer's handbook so specifies, and it is
  countersigned by the Kingdom Officer, the Kingdom Seneschal, and the
  Crown, the provisions of that handbook are hereby incorporated as a part
  of kingdom law.

There is all too much law that the majority of us don't know about since
we don't have copies of all of these "handbooks or policy manuals".
