You are right; there is no proof it can't be done.  Unfortuntely, there is no 
proof it *can* be done either.  We generally seem to take a more conservate 
approach to Hol here:  if ti cannot be proved possible, if there is no canon 
proof *for* it, you cannot do it.  So until we know one way or the other, we 
take the hrader road, and assume not.  Of course, I could be wrong, but this 
is just how I see it.
