Should competitors be allowed to use tools such as superglue, screwdrivers, or paperclips to repair defects during a solve? Not to assist in solving the puzzle, but to repair a defect (out-of-place magic string, 2x2 internal pop, etc).
A5b) prohibits this while solving, but is repairing a defect considered part of the solving process? We should be more explicit about what is allowed when repairing a defect.
Conflicting precedents exist for this:
At Dayton 2010, a competitor was not allowed to use a screwdriver in case of an internal 2x2 pop.
At US Nationals 2010, word of mouth claims that a competitor was allowed to use superglue to repair a 7x7 defect.
