A Visual Guide To the New Floor Rules

Sporteverywhere on YouTube has posted this wonderful video with a great visual representation of the new floor rules.

If you don't know who he is, he posts brilliant videos decoding the current code of points with routines past and present. This video, he uses Aliya Mustafina's floor routine from the 2013 World Championships to illustrate what is allowed and what is not.

So what is learned:

Aliya would need to rearrange her routine as she goes straight into a tumbling pass from the get go and almost immediately goes into her next tumbling pass from the next corner. She could do one long acro line ala Dominique Dawes.
