Default Monsters removed from combat and Wandering Monster

I've been reading the official FAQs and from my understanding, there's a contradiction between this:

Q. Does the "reasonable time rule" apply to defeating a monster without killing it, or just to killing it?
A. Any sort of defeat. If you defeat it without killing it, other players still have a reasonable time to play an applicable card to frustrate you. However, if you removed the only monster from the fight (with Magic Lamp, for instance), they cannot play Monster Enhancers or other similar cards that affect a specific monster, because there isn't one there to fight, and they can't use any special rules for bringing in monsters (such as the Shark rules from Munchkin Booty) that depend on having a monster in the fight. They can play Wandering Monster to bring in an entirely new monster, but they must do it at once.
... and this July 2018 new global rule:

If all monsters are removed from a combat, the combat ends immediately.
Maybe the answer to the quoted question should change? Is it possible to play Wandering Monster cards after defeating the last monster from a combat (by killing or any other way) or not?

The FAQ is in need of an edit. I've been a little preoccupied writing new Munchkin games, but it's on my list to get to very soon.
