Marvin et al -
This is question that Dr. Salingaros would be better qualified to answer and perhaps he will. I also had your thought as I have been applying these rules myself. As I'm sure you know, "ton-sur-ton" uses of color also occur importantly in Mughol rugs and are even present in some Turkoman pieces. As stated this particular rule seems quite straightforward. It may well be that this is a rule that we would ultimately question on the grounds you mention. One answer might be that Mr. Salingaros does not require that a great rug meet all 10 rules. Nine are sufficient.
