With 6 players on the LOS wearing eligible numbers, on 4th down in scrimmage kick formation, the formation itself is a legal one.
                                                         22    32    42    13    23    43
                                               
                                                                    10     11  12


                                                                    (P) 15

5 players with numbers 50 - 79 are being replaced by 5 players with receiver numbers as per the exception. However, in order for this to be legal, the players in the game under the exception must line up between the ends. Since there are only 4 that satisfy this requirement, you would have a foul for "Illegal Numbering" but not for an "Illegal Formation". (7-2 Pen.)
Also, numbers 22 & 43 are eligible receivers who may legally catch a forward pass.

                                             



                                                                       

                                         
                                                                       

Again, this is why I don't "swap".  They don't want this as a foul with the ILF rule change the other year.  Just make everyone between the ends ineligible and call it a day.

CalhounLJ - I just re-read your post and see where you're coming from. Indeed if all lineman in this situation are wearing receiver numbers then it would be impossible to not have an "Illegal Numbering" issue with less than 7 on the line.

The eligibility of these linemen is not the question. Of course, they are not eligible. The question is have they satisfied the exception to the lineman numbering rule.

Exactly.
