Right, but I'm saying there isn't really a difference as the language is currently used. "Embellishment" is an umbrella term which includes the act of diving. If you want to make a distinction between the two going forward, that's fine... but I don't really see the distinction as having real value.
Well, I have a problem with the player who slashed/tripped/whatever not getting any time for it. Embellishment happens when a penalty actually occurs; that penalty needs to be assessed. Also, if you just void that player's penalty, are you allowed to then send them out on the ensuing PP? That's kind of sensitive, though there's no real easy solution to that with the double minor idea either. Unless you just say that player isn't allowed to play during the PP, but that could be a hassle to worry about.
