Legal language is very precise. I kind of love its precision. In this context it makes perfect sense for meaning to hinge on a comma. - I have to deal with, recognize, and interpret similar subtle distinctions in language frequently (enough) as part of my Real Job.

I always use the Oxford comma. I deal in these sorts of precise language issues occasionally at work too, so I am always trying to be aware of how something I put out could be interpreted. Not that the people who are supposed to read my emails actually do, mind you.
