If I'm not mistaken, that's roughly the same as the current rule. The
only question I see is, how do you define what counts as a "sentence"?

Diego has, I believe, been using the definition that a sentence must
have both a verb and an object, and anything which has both is one. This
seems reasonable to me; it sometimes produces results which I do not
find intuitive, but it has not to date produced results which I found
seriously objectionable. Do you disagree with that definition? If so,
what would you propose as an alternative?

side of it.

Secrecy is the beginning of tyranny.
