I would most strongly second this. I cannot imagine that the intent of that
rule was to deny an honorary title to a man who embodied many ideals of the
Society both on and off the field simply because he had the poor judgement to
die before he could be crowned. Jafar richly deserved the title of Duke, as
much as anyone I've ever known in the Society, and the only thing I find TRULY
sad is that he will never be able to claim the title in person.
Just my two cents, but a very heartfelt two cents,
