```Your reasoning differs from the usual understanding of a null product (1
or True), as compared to a null sum (0 or False):

Here, "any path" means all paths, a logical conjunction:

and [True, True] = True
and [True      ] = True
and [          ] = True

The empty case of all sources touching is True, so 12 is a valid
dominator for 20 if there is no path from 12 to 20.
