One of the changes I've noticed in v4.01 (BTW, it would be helpful to have a list highlighting the changes from 4.0 to 4.01) is the addition of 6.6e which reads "Defensive Op Sheets when drawn may only specify locations that are held or are 'behind friendly lines.' Players will need to use common sense here."

This would seem to invalidate the standard operating procedure of accruing time on a Defensive Op Sheet for the objective of your current Attack Op Sheet (a tactic which is still mentioned earlier in 6.6 and in the Design Note that follows 6.6e). But my common sense is telling me that the intent here is to prevent gamey tactics like using a Defensive Op sheet with prelim instructions to seize unoccupied territory, not to prevent advance planning to defend the objective of your Attack Op Sheet once its captured.

Is my common sense leading my astray or am I interpreting the designers intent correctly?

The rules still have the same Design Note about a defensive order accruing time during an attack, so I guess you're interpreting the designer's intent the same way I do.

I agree highlighted changes would help.

I think it should be "when implemented" not "when drawn "here.

Chuck your common sense is correct. Consider it behind friendly lines when implemented, so it is fully proper and correct (and a great idea) to create a hasty defense or even prep defense to follow up an attack. But in that window between declaring the attack op sheet completed and implementing the defensive op sheet is a nice counterattack window...
