Scott Evans posted Game Update 15 today thanks to our discussion:

15 - BOWLING PIN BREAKAGE
Since it's understood that the bowling pins break easily, and this is
no one's fault, and that bowling in general is a destructive activity,
and that breaking a pin in the process of knocking it down doesn't
give you any benefit, this update is to declare that pin breakage is a
non-factor with respect to scoring and with respect to Rule 22.
Referees will consider the position of the base of a pin, whether or
not the pin is broken.

Thanks for the question!
