Actually, the letter says:

Please note that for this requirement only, we are depending on the
personal honor of attendees for compliance. We urge gentles who are
confronted with the dress of those who fail to comply with these
standards to courteously remind them that this is not the game we are
playing here.

That said (to me) that the Seneschal's Court wasn't for the dress
issues, but for the other admin issues that arise from 10,000 people
camping cheek-by-jowl for two weeks in the hot sun.  Things like certain
Knights from a certain kingdom waking every camp for 100 yards by
pounding on a pot  with a spoon at 6 am and shouting about mustering on
the road in one hour....
