Does this imply that single rapier will be on the decline in favour of
rapier and dagger since there is no prohibition of using a parrying
dagger to parry the opponent's hand/arm/wrist?

I would think that intentional weapon to body contact of any kind is
more dangerous than parrying the opponent's hand/arm/wrist with your
hand.  If there's a move to outlaw intentional weapon to body contact,
then that rather puts a damper on all combat!
