It was originally done in the rules rewrite in the late 90's. The society 
marshal, when the rules were being discussed said it was out, an insurance thing 
apparently, and was non-negotiable.  Dylan recently noticed that it was not 
reflected int he current rules, and being a part of that discussion remembered 
the society marshal forbidding it, and brought the rules up to date, with the 
approval of the current society marshal and the BOD.
