I think the need to point this out implies that the condition (and the 
wording of the condition) is too complex for most authors to understand 
(and it's clear that no UA will enforce such a condition). Therefore the 
paragraph as it stands benefits no-one and I suggest altering the 
wording, at least.

Just do what Beaker does, just shrug and 'Meep!'"
