3) if touching in the time window causes a scoring condition to occur
and/or not be destroyed
then --if all three are true-- plus, they are obviously true to the
referee, then that mission is marked scoreless.
In the discussion of the Search Engine, there's no strategically precise
time window, nor a robot touch necessarily involved, so Rule 48 is not
