Worry about the 200′ issue is an analytic tool which you can use to measure your comparative situation.
Most people cannot even estimate 200′, not one is going to get out a measurement device and mark it off, and anyone we even reads the number “200′” will not begin to wonder what you are doing. People are not critical thinkers because that skill isn’t taught in schools (as it once was). Except in professions where members wouldn’t be concerned about how many feet you had. You are imaging people who are petty and looking for trouble. Such people aren’t clever enough use mathematics.
However, you are within your rights any way because 200′ isn’t actually in the rules. True? Therefore it is an informal estimate, and acting within the rules, you are lucky enough to do better than 200′ The literature that mentions “200′” is giving a ballpark figure, and avoids the elaboration that would follow if they’d bothered to detail all the exceptions.
You are legal, so act legal.
