Some important gaps remain in achieving a universal showdown rule. Can any progress be made on these issues?

Example of one thread is here:

Also language is needed to prevent an angle shoot where:
1: Two players at showdown.
2: Player A says "my hand isn't that strong" and tosses his cards forward w/o tabling, however they are still identifiable
3: Player B, also not tabled, tosses his cards directly in the muckpile thinking he's won (or dealer inexplicably mucks them first)
4: Player A immediately demands his still-identifiable cards be tabled.

The above situation can be covered by Rule 1, or course, but specific language is desirable.

 The best solution is to insist that all cards be tabled at showdown. Currently, this is only required when any player is all-in. If you look back at the video from the 2013 Summit, you will see that Jack Effel made this suggestion several times.
