17. seems like a non sequitur to me
I agree that the configuration change is a workaround that doesn't bring the systems into compliance with NY election law.

...the certification process failed to detect a clear violation of the plain language of an election law. If that can happen, we shouldn't be relying on this process to determine the outcomes of elections in lieu of a rigorous software-independent audit...

This argument makes no sense to me at all. Complying with this provision of law wouldn't mitigate the need for audits, and failing to comply with it doesn't increase the need for audits. Whatever.
