There can't be a PC foul on a "tip". A "tip" is regarded as being the same as as batting the ball during a rebound or a jump ball, and it is not considered as being a try. Therefore the "airbone shooter" or continuous motion" rules do not apply on a tip.That's what case book play 6.7COMMENT is saying.

And the tap isn't a tap until the player makes contact with the ball. Before that point, it's a loose ball that is not in team control. If a foul occurs before the ball contact, it's a common foul.
