As I think you said before, it doesn’t have to be. It could be visually part of it, around it, even somewhat visually separate. Buit it isn’t necessarily one or the other.

I agree there has to be a dfiference that the person can spot, but it doesn’t help us with the language of the exception and how people interpret that.

If you agree that the language around ‘nature’ is essentially role, then the definition of state is that it is “of” the component.

If you then assert that any change by the author means the exception doesn’t apply, then the list of ‘absurd’ outcomes I put before also apply.
