[eDebate] The 2 Worker rule.

JP--I think there is as much enforcement as there is for any of the "rules."  Part of the idea is to encourage teams to "declare" the people they have back at the hotel cutting cards and get those folks in the judge pool.  
It is not a loophole, but it is the case that the judges you bring are free to coach/judge in any capacity.  If each of your three judges covers the minimum number of rounds (4), and your two declared workers each judge the minimum (4), one team at NDT can still bring five "coach-types" (as I understand it).  You would be providing extra rounds in that case (and you could still bring an official scout and some eligible undergrads to help), but that is a good thing.
Thus, there is no need for your kritiky language loop-hole argument (especially without an alternative).
