If Charlie allied with someone to delay his Turn, and then allied with someone earlier in the Turn order and broke the other Alliance, he should be able to go with the new Allied Side, because Charlescomm units still have Move. [Edit... check that. that might cause problems with delaying the new allied side to the old side... if he breaks Alliance first, his Turn has already passed... not sure how this would resolve, now.]
You have a point, but not for the reason(s) you're thinking. Charlescomm is a side which has as its business model allying with many different sides at once. Charlie has expressed reasons which were purely based around his desire to retain future customers as the reason he won't swap sides during a conflict. Reasons which would seem to go out the window once Charlie decides that he is seeing a "no lose condition" situation. Charlescomm could conceivably be allied with several or even all
sides within any given conflict, and this would play merry hob with the rules for when allies can act. It might be Charlescomm's greatest potential exploit, in the coming conflicts.

How would they not know? The forums speculated that Chewie was casting simply because he was speaking like a carny speaks. There has been a lot of this speculation surrounding casters and whether they are casting or not. If Jack speaks as Jack speaks, is he therefore casting because he is a foolamancer? If Wanda speaks as Wanda speaks, is she therefore casting naughtymancy? If Marie speaks as Marie speaks, is she therefore casting predictamancy? If Sizemore speaks as Sizemore speaks, is he therefore casting dirtamancy? This way lies madness. Casters cast when there is a noticeable effect of that casting. The more subtle schools of casting may get some kind of pass in the future, I won't argue the possibility. But I don't think we've seen this kind of pass to date (I do not count the temporary effect of the "dead" dwagon at the battle of the pass to FAQ, or the temporary effect of the flash mob, etc) which makes it more difficult for any particular tin foil hat theory to present substance over speculation.
Also, penultimate LAST! (Before the next update, I'm hoping.)
