A rule proposal, to prevent the evasion of (initially) Rule 60 by

  Dereliction of Duty [Psmith]

  If the rules require an action to be taken by the active player, that
  player may not declare his or her turn completed until that action has
  been taken. If the turn ends by the passage of time without the action
  having been taken, then by the sectional consent of all other players
  the state of the game may be changed to one which it would have
  been if the player had taken that action; furthermore, the player
  may be awarded a loss of up to ten brownie points and/or the receipt of
  one demerit by the aforementioned sectional consent.
