When it says, 'Whenever a piece is captured, it is held for dropping by the enemy,' does 'the enemy' mean the enemy of its original owner or the enemy of the capturer? When I first read this I assumed 'the enemy' meant the enemy of its original side, so that the captured piece changes sides.

If the piece changes sides, then it still need to be clarified whether the alternative winning condition is exactly-one or at-least-one piece per region, because there could be more than 15 allied pieces on the board at once.
