I suspect that this rule might be due to the you didn't tell me "not to put my dog in a microwave/that the coffee would be hot/that if I use Cruise control I still have to steer" effect.

If you're told to do something and then don't the liablity is shifted - therefore I suspect that every organisation will have to adopt the rule or face being taken to court for emotional stress by the first person to get a dunking whilst attcached to the wire.

But then someone gets trapped / dies wearing an 'approved harness' and the ISAF gets sued. 

I still believe the ISAF have put them selves betweena  rock and a hard place with this rule an d can now see this - Hence why they (the ISAF) are dodging making any statements while they (the ISAF) work out how to get out of it.

I don't think they're in touch enough with the real world (ie where people get wet now and then) to be aware they've made a mistake. Either that or they're just too belligerent to care.

Having read the forum thread on the ISAF site I am not surprised that they haven't responded in an appropriate manner.  The comments are basically downright rude, childish and provocative...

If you want your comments to be taken seriously, present a serious considered argument!
