Valid or not (I consider it invalid) this particular argument will not 
win you any sympathy points from the "warfaring personas."

You do realize that these Letters of Marque that you so greatly desire 
would (either directly or via landed Baronage) come from a "warfaring " 
type.  I suggest that you step lightly down this path!
