Annotation: This is a technical, legal term. Compare the common "Silence is assent."

Just add that "Silence is assent." variant.

An interesting suggestion, but I should argue that this sentence, unlike vernacular renditions of the same idea, has no variants; because it is a technical term of English case law. As such it (1) refers not just to the main idea but to all the various restrictions of application that have developed in the judgment of particular cases and (2) is commonly used (I'm guessing) only by lawyers.
