In the specific case of an ambiguous statement, with two alleged
judgements that are opposite in value, both reasonable, but both
inconsistent with their underlying conditions, I don't think it's
intellectually dishonest for the appeals process to break the tie
on grounds other than reasonable-ness.
Furthermore, the reason I suggested overturning your judgement
rather than Goethe's is not a desire to convince Goethe to
re-register in future - I believe that any judicial resolution
would convince em, or at least go as far as we can toward that
end - but rather a desire to minimize the impact of the
unfortunately worded Proposal 4882.
