Exactly. The intent of the OLD rule was crystal clear, and yet we ended up with the Pork Collar Advisory being read at every cooks' meeting so that we all could recite it verbatim by the end of the season, and people posting on this very forum that they were damn well going to reheat (or "set sauce"
) whatever they wanted because nobody was going to catch them.
The big push to change the rule to allow returning parted pork to the cooker is just to legalize what was already going on.
