Add a rule to the Appendex called “The Maxim of Quantity” as follows:
The ruleset is assumed to follow Grice’s Maxim of Quantity, that is, that it is to be interpreted as being exactly as informative as is necessary for a native English speaker to understand it. Specifically, a clause with “may” specifies the limits of an action that may be performed (“may collect three items” does not allow for an interpretation of “may collect any number of items, including three”, but only the meaning “may collect only three items”) and it cannot be interpreted to mean that abiding by the limitation is optional unless “may” is followed by “choose to”.
Now without a “must”. I don’t think this is necessary, but maybe it will shut Cuddlebeam up.
