As you say, this is widely ignored in practice and standards are
"policed" by bands. This works well, so just remove the text.

I see no evidence that any new text would make any difference to the
standard of peals, so amending the text is pointless.  Either remove
it (preferable) or just leave it in its current irrelevance.
