Yes, concise and specific. That is exactly how I mean it. There is a particular mind-set with which the concepts of law are written in an attempt to avoid ambiguity as much as possible, while addressing consequence as a residual effect of action and inaction accounted for. I think that, in addition to SJ's writing-style, is a large part of why the rules-set is a pleasure to read for the mind AND the mind's-eye.
