hence what?

I started with an inconsistent set of premises and you split that into two 
consistent subsets and worked on them independently.

I deduced falsity from my inconsistent premises, and then proved whatever 
theorem I wanted.

If those last two rules are not in the direct semantics then that looks like a 
bug with them to me. (I haven't looked at section 3 much though).
