See, THIS is why we should teach kids computer programming instead of civics. Because computer programming teaches you civics! I knew LISP would come in handy!
In all honesty, I wish legal documents were written that way. It would make the extraneous statements more obvious and the legalese less dense. Then again, it would also allow for easier refactoring, resulting is shorter and more understandable documents. Putting hundreds of lawyers out on the streets... wait, I'm not sure that's a bad thing.
