If I didn’t know them any better, I would say this is ISDA’s crack drafting squad™ in “I’ve just ended an unhappy love affair and I’m in a bad mood so you can damn well suffer, too” mood. Certainly reads like the writing of someone who has it in for the human race. Note there are cancellation options here, but also, independently, cancellation options for Index Adjustment Events in the Extraordinary Events selection. Why were these separated like this? For the sheer devil of it, most likely.
