I'm guessing the failure per se is the use of preformatted text, with 
the addition of wrongly thinking that it might be something that's valid 
to exclude as being required to reflow? And that in the end, the failure 
will be retitled to just "Using preformatted text" with a clear 
indication in the prose of the failure that no, it doesn't count 
automatically as an exemption?
