Now, that potential interpretation is not possible.
That is the way I interpreted it as well when reading this here. This was not a change they talked about this summer, so I was unaware of any specific wording change in this part of the rule. But I am sure it will be addressed, but I tend to agree with your assessment of this change. I do not think we ever allowed them to run the endline after a T anyway.
