383/1: On the scope of rules over rule-changes - Draft

[ I've been doing some reading of the rules, and I think a couple of things are not stated (such as, the exact meaning of "rule-change") which could be used to do some nasty things to the system with enough thought. This should help plug it. However, I want to get this into a form people can agree to, so I'd like to (as per rule 111) delay voting on this rule until people are happy with it. ]

A rule-proposal is a rule-change. A rule created by a rule-change is *not* a rule-change, and is bound by the rules as a corpus. If the rule itself is not immutable it cannot create, ammend or repeal any immutable rules. Should a system of precedence be agreed upon, a rule may not affect a rule from a precedence above its own.
