^ this is the rule as it stands now - why shouldn't it apply?
IMO, a disc that falls through the top is no different than DROT = not in. Count those, and you really should count DROT's as well.

I understand your point, but it's the same as a disc that enters through the side of the basket (wedgies)... If you don't see how it enters (on a blind hole or whatever), the assumption is it entered the basket in the most likley way
- by passing over the vertical edge of the basket into the chains/tray, rather than assuming it entered through the top or side.
However, when it's observed to have entered "illegally,"
there's nothing to assume - it's not in.
Seems pretty cut and dried to me.
