Japanese Rain Chain and "Quarter Persian 5-in-1"

I was spelunking the library, and came upon this weave;
Japanese Rain Chain, and had to do som research.

First of, the "weave image" is showing two different things; one is a traditional Japanese rain chain (on the right), traditionally using NSR, as can be seen in this image: https://japan-magazine.jnto.go.jp/en/1605_rainchain.html.

This means, that the image on the left, is not what's depicted as per the description.

This leaves it submitted as Quarter Persian 5-in-1, in 2012, but as an article.

I feel like this should be resolved.

(However, japanese rainchains come in multiple variations; usually 2-1 chains or NSR constructions. The depicted one (on the left) is not a traditional rain chain, though, making the description and so on wrong).

Picking holes in the first ~200 or so weaves in the library, especially based on images, is very very easy.
Sadly, there is no current mechanism for "force altering" existing submissions, due to the submission agreement.

Eventually, there will be a way to "cache" the original submission while including "better" data -- This has been on the docket for quite some time. There are more pressing things, however...

and you could change the submission agreement to have more control over these.

That’s actually the easy part.

I still want the Agreement to make sure that MAIL can change stuff as needed, with no hassle.

The first step is to make all new submissions follow the new guideline, and then work our way backwards.
