And maybe just as important, if a crossbow needs to be modified to
shoot this rearend boffer quarrel, will it still shoot target
quarrels adequately? 

When I bought my crossbow some ten years ago I bought it with a 
drawwieght that would let me shoot combat archery, yet still let
me shoot target archery, although at a disadvantage.

If extensive enough, these changes to the bow/crossbow may make
folks have choose to shoot only one style and give up the other.

This rules change may end up having an effect on target archery as
well as combat archery.

Hey, since both ends of the combat quarrel are now the same size,
does these mean getting hit by either end counts as a "kill"?
