Nice find.
I think the difference (as far as I can tell) is that CFJ 2450 involved
a MAY (so it turned out to be illegal but possible to make the announcement)
while R2419 uses a 'can', albeit an uncapitalized one, (implying that
it is impossible to make such an announcement that triggers the effect).
Could be wrong though.
