The Law says the player is "deemed to have revoked". They didn't actually revoke, so the definition of what constitutes a revoke is not really relevant. "Deem" means that we treat it as if they'd revoked, even though they didn't.

They could have put this condition into the definition of revoke to make things more consistent, but it's not a problem that they didn't.

I agree, more or less.
It would have been nice to make things consistent (after ten years to think about it) but yes it wasn't essential this time (and may be academic next time).

This deem business is akin to a rule such as If you jaywalk you are deemed to have killed the President. Ok, the President is alive and you are deemed to have killed him. When there is a play out of turn is the skipped player told to correct his revoke?


Apparently you have not bothered to familiarize yourselves with laws 44 through 66 before discussing law 67?
They all consern plays, correct procedures and irregularities during the play periode and must be understood as a whole.

Yes, the President is still alive. But the point of "deemed" is to say that the rectification is the same. The analogy would be to say that the punishment for jaywalking is the same as for killing the President.
