one example is the defensive player at the front of his creasewho is lifting the stick of an offensive player while the puck is not with in reach of that offensive player...such as in the corner or at the boards.
Are you writing these rules as you go along? The seminar I just went to never covered things in nearly the depth you seem to be going to. Again, possesion is not required, you are adding something that is just not there.
