3.3.5. Hand(s): Area below the wrist (exclusive). An empty hand is a legal target area. A hand on a weapon or shield is considered part of that weapon or shield. Any hit to the hand is considered a hit to the arm.

This rule is adequate, however I feel that we could reduce the potential for misinterpretation by rewording to one of the following:

3.3.5. Hand(s): Area below the wrist (exclusive). An empty hand is a legal target area. A hand on holding a weapon or shield is considered part of that weapon or shield, and is not a legal target area. Any hit to the hand target area is considered a hit to the arm.

I much prefer the second option. The first could open up confusing if a hand holding a weapon is accidentally hit -- is that an illegal strike similar to a head shot? It's clearly not with the way the game is played now, but declaring it to not be a valid target area would cause confusion.
