I don't think the question even makes sense.  How could L16C2a be 
applied retrospectively?

If you want an analogy to the "scoring question" thread, imagine the 
Director is called in advance and determines that North-to-be has 
(through no fault of his own) seen East's cards.  Can North then take 
the East seat, South the West seat, etc.?

Unless there's some special case, such as the NS and EW fields grossly 
differing in strength, I don't see why not.
