I thought that "You really must have it in for me" (and similiar

you've done something or are proposing something with bad
consequences, which you may or may not realize.

A proposal for a rules change can always be put forward.  However,
I think such a proposal ought to address the point I made previously,
that it rewards rule-breaking -- actually, it annuls the rules.

No, come to think of it, Francois was doubtless as polite as Da'ud
would have been in such circumstances.
