I suspect this means that instead of saying "Las Contractiones de los Articulos conglas Prepositiones" (with straight Latin forms), they mandate that any borrowing from Latin (or possibly other languages?) must first be placed through the sound shift applier/Grand Master Plan, and the resulting form used instead. Sort of like an Academie Allemande which would mandate that, for example, borrowings from Greek and Latin must be put through the High German Sound Shift before use so we'd have, I don't know, "Die Kontrachzionen der Arzichel mit den Pfreffosizionen", or whatever.
