Going further the Rule makes no reference to the photographs whatsoever so again, devil's advocate, the photos are somewhat meaningless?
No. There was a difference. The guidance on those positions was what 'could' be considered legal if it gave no advantage. That was the problem, people thought that meant they were legal in all situations and forgot about the advantage bit or weren't able to tell. Or that other positions were considered illegal.

This isn't a 'could be'. This is bfta guidance to the shooter and marshal as what is deemed legal and not. If it's in that guidance as being illegal then it's as such.
