The former :)

I've played Bridge for about 70 years and participated in law-discussions from rec.games.bridge and bridge.laws.mailing.list onward.
Sven Pran often disputes rule-interpretation with other top law-experts.
Rule-makers and directors seem unconcerned by their regular disagreement over rulings in simple cases with agreed facts.

Arguably, simpler rules might be clearer to players and directors and result in fewer contentious rulings.

Online forums often produce lots of "how many angels can dance on the head of a pin" discussions, which are fun to debate but don't really have much day-to-day impact. When pran asked if this was based on experience or assumptions, I think he meant whether this really affects your playing experience much.

I've only been playing bridge half as long as you, but as I said earlier I've been in far more discussions about these issues than actual occurrences of the situations at the table.
