10.1.9 was written involving a team gaining an advantage. Would they have the same result if the case play was written so no unfair advantage was gained? Though you are correct, as written this should have been a "T"
The case doesn't specify, frankly, that it would be different without an advantage.

Personally, if the situation happened during a timeout with multiple substitutions, I'd go with the rule for the timeout. There should be no confusion following a timeout.

More importantly, however, from the officials' perspective, count the players on the court before you put the ball in play. "Coach, we need one more."
