So, the question remains - Little Susie needs to go right now - does 
this mean the whole group is dragged, Susie is forbidden to go or 
that the "two deep" rule actually requires 4 people to be workable. A 
child who needs to go to the bathroom without delay is in no way 
synonymous with "baby sitting"

Or do you send 9 year old Susie to the bathroom by herself?

I do not *want* anything in particular one way or the other. I am 
trying to ascertain how the system might be made to work and part of 
that is potential problem scenarios
