If I remember the original post correctly, the question related to an
advancement chairman questioning the number of merit badges counseled by one
person on a scouts advancement application. If this is the case, and the
advancement chairman should fail to pass the boy for the rank based on his
concern with this, he would indeed be adding to the requirements and would
be overturned on appeal.
While a council may have the right to limit the number of badges is
questionable at best, failing the boy on this basis is definitely a no-no.
