I was going to let this one lay because the first post was basicly correct.
You can continue to work on the merit badges. When asked, what happens
when the badges run out and the scout wants to get the badge anyway,
the answer was basicly, do what you want, we really have not given it much
thought. The official policy I got from Philmont this Summer was very
close to what was stated. This is the policy satement straight from the
horses mouth. John as well as several members of the National Advancment
Committee were there. You can continue to work on the badges. Local
councils may discourage this, but it is a National Award and a National
Policy. They can not change it.

The requirements for Eagle are mostly trivial, any scout is capable. Doing
them is what is significant, because most people never finish what they start.
