Although I basically agree with you about the reason here, I don't
believe that we can lay this one at the feet of the BOD (intead, place
it on those "other officials" you mentioned).  There are Kingdoms that
allow minor aged people to fight in chivalric combat, much less boffer,
with appropriate waivers, etc.  If the BOD were the ones holding us
back, then _no_ kingdom could do would be against corpora, or
at least have a GP&D against it.
