Look. Do it this way:

Since party rules override state law:

- Some time before the vote, point of order from the floor asking the chair to rule whether the Republican Party recognizes delegate binding or if the party rules make delegates free to vote their conscience regardless of state law and state party rules to the contrary.
- If the chair rules binding is a fiction (very unlikely) everybody gets to vote the way he wants.
- If the chair rules that the binding is recognized, APPEAL THE RULING OF THE CHAIR.
- (Assuming rules are followed and you get a second): If we have enough delegates who want to be unbound, we win and delegates are unbound.
- If we lose the vote, delegates are bound. (And we'd probably lose the nomination even if they WEREN'T bound.) So vote according to the binding, cross your fingers, and take your medicine. Romney probably gets the nomination on the first ballot and Obama gets four more years.
- If the chair fails to recognize the appeal or otherwise horses around with the proceedings, he does it on national television in front of a WHOLE COUNTRY full of people who know Roberts Rules.

That way everything is above board and unambiguous.

Remember: The meeting, including the interpretation of the rules, is the property of the participants, not the officers. And when it comes to voting on the interpretation of the rules, the delegates get to vote their consciences, regardless of how, or whether, they are bound to vote on the nomination.
