You're using the pass rules properly, it's only the sid values that are
wrong.  As Seth already mentioned elsewhere in the thread, you can use the
pass rules but just change the way you associate them with the original
rules.  Personally, I don't use pass rules much, but when I do I put them
just before the rule they go with, and I include comments to make clear
the relationship between the two and why the pass rule is necessary.
