I am not sure that we really need this extra rule but I won't object if
others want it.

A) Yes
C) OK as an optional rule. It would be nice to be able to have your own
free card if you aren't being cheesy. I can see various possible cheese
options here but as long as it's optional they should be OK.

A) seems a bit harsh but then again, I wouldn't get a Vortex missile so
what do I care :-)
B) seems reasonable.

OK with me.

A) - but phrase it differently. It may not be possible to avoid
overlapping but just sa that there is no increased effect from overlaps.
C) is easy and may save arguments over whether or not a template reaches
the centre.
