I've seen examples of both (refusal to waive and waiver) - I think it
depends on the specific situation that necessitates the waiver and the
monarchs involved.  I can think of scenarios where it makes more and
less sense to waive the requirement, and I'm sure others can too.

Yes, although a reason for denial is required (Section

True enough; I think the *idea* is that the one year is a *guideline*
for the Monarchs.  

However you bring up an interesting point. Sections, and are certainly redundant to Corpora (Are you listening
Falcone?!) is only somewhat different from Corpora at present
(it's more explicit), and and seem to be in direct
contradiction to each other.  Subsection 5 has the stronger and clearer
language, subsection 9 preserves the 'power of the Crown' somewhat
more....  Perhaps Their Majesties and the Clerk of Law could take this
up at the next Curia?
