I haven't personally read any Reddings guide explanation that is proported to suggest the interpretation alluded to it.

I absolutely disagree with your assessment that the "letter of the rule" supports such a contention, rather that this illogical conclusion is the result of an excessively limiting interpretation of what is intended by use of the word "touching" and the intent, and purpose, of the rule in it's entirety.
