===Flag "pass" issues===
 
The current method of using the flag respawn on drop to pass a team flag was never a defined 'feature' of the game. Many maps have been designed to turn this into a gameplay feature. In order to be able to maintain this type of gameplay a real feature has to be implemented to support it. Current development code has already "broken" teleporter passing by improving the definitions of the teleporter geometry and making no longer a "bad" place to put a flag. Similar enhancements are expected to be made in other parts of the world that would break other types of passing.
 
 
To properly support the desired behavior a set of map defined zones or faces needs to be implemented that can detect when specific flags are dropped on them and define a respawn target zone or area. This will allow maps to fully define pass zones in an arbitrary way for any flag. Defining the a real feature will prevent new code from changing the defined behavior in adverse ways.
