The thing is, risking your picks on a ruling the governing body believes to be interpreted the opposite way is a foolish decision.
That's why it seems that the argument is that the definition is open for interpretation, which is what lawyers are great at arguing for/against.

My interpretation of the language (or the intention of it) is that a RFA re-signing with the club he is property of would be waiver exempt. However, a club signing another team's RFA does not gain this waiver exemption.

The language does leave some room for interpretation, but hopefully this isn't a case that has to be presented in front of an arbitrator or judge to define the language.
