The wording "in the grammar header and before the first rule"
is redundant.
And if it was not redundant, it would mean that SI tags after
the first rule are not global SI tags...

The SISR spec (4.2) says:
"The header of an [SRGS] grammar may contain one or more global
SI Tags"
Equally, the SRGS spec (4.1) indicates that tags are part of the
header, and says (subsection "XML Form: Header Summary"):
"Rule definitions follow the lexicon, meta, metadata and tag declarations."

Therefore, your modified grammar is illegal w.r.t SRGS+SISR specifications.

Best regards.
