The legalistic tone really is just a touchstone to what I believe is a deeper 
problem, namely the expectation that anyone is going to be that aware and 
discriminating in their on-going behavior.  Besides the inherent challenge for 
anyone in that position, remember that most of us are rather less self-analytic, 
subtle, or aware of what makes for healthy oversight.,

Again:  If we are in such dire straights that an RSOC must be involved in the 
details of the work, we have much bigger resource problems.  For one things, it 
is a demonstration of an inability to delegate.

The rule should be simple and straightforward to say, think about and apply. 
This is not a topic that needs anything careful and precise because its 
application won't support it.
