Unusual action with UI
16B3 does not operate independently from 16B1. 16B3 explains what happens once there is a determination that a player has chosen a call that violates 16B1b.

Michael: Roland is right. The player has clearly violated 73C. For that, he should either be admonished or receive a PP (despite what I said earlier). If nothing else, the player who says that he chose an action because of the UI is guilty of criminal stupidity. That doesn't ...

Unusual action with UI
I remember a missort of larger significance. I held a 3253 hand and opened 1NT. After my partner's response, I notices that both of my black suits were spades!
ATB - Wrong Game
I do not understand why 3 is invitational + while 3 is less than invitational. I play these reversed (except that 3 is forcing). That allows opener to get out in 3 when appropriate.
