Specifically, it says: "Failure of the Reign or Succession: Procedures 
shall be established in the law of the realm to ensure the succession and 
to provide for the maintenance of the realm and its royal offices in the 
event of disaster, failure, or absence of any of the reigning royalty or 
their heirs."(Corpora IV.F.5)

That states, explicitly and unambiguously, that additional law is indeed 
required at the kingdom level.

Specifically, Corpora states that "Formal actions and announcements with 
long-term impact on the Society may occur only at Society events for which 
a full announcement including date, time, and place has been published in 
advance in the appropriate corporate publication. These actions include 
Crown and Coronet Tournaments ...." (Corpora II.C)

The event announcement has in fact been published.  My understanding is 
that there will also be one-time mailing to the Black Star mailing list.
