      Misordering deliberately is difficult under such rules, I agree; but as long as the order is completely ambiguous or clearly impossible, then it is a misorder. The best option is to order the unit twice, ordering a different action each time - a more plausible misorder.
      However, I don't think many players are fooled by deliberate misorders anyway, so I think the practice of using misorders is crude and largely counter-productive.

      Absolutely you need to know the parameters you are playing under, I think I
      said what the GM will or won't do should be laid down in the HR, but I don't
      think that we should put any rule in that makes deliberate misorders
      impossible or obvious ...

      So how does he misorder it ? You won't let me misspell the province or
      mistype the unit - Bul - Arm fooling no-one ?
