We will all have to make our own decisions on this matter. From your other
posts, while I don't know you, you seem to be full of fight and not willing
to die in combat without a struggle.  Please show that same grim
determination here.

There is a lot of time between now, 1 Aug and the BoD meeting in October.
Much can happen and there is much to do.

And live will go on, one way or another, with us or without us.  We can hope
for the best, whatever that may be in each of our minds, but we can also
prepare for the worst.

If these rules are adapted I will never loose a shaft in combat again.
