Alas, poor Samhain. I knew Her, Horatio,

The "revised contract" to revert rights before the contractual six month delay are going out in sporadically.  Mine turned up today.  And, as others have noted, it is a unnecessarily curly and complex addendum, but given that I am not in the habit of suing people without a lot more cause--I signed it.
