Yes, I think so.  You don't want it to be a New Rule itself, or it would be susceptible to New Rule destruction.  As an Action, and especially as one that specifically plays atop the New Rule, it means it can effectively do its job to "shield" the rule and that it can only be used once per game (since there's no way to get it back, since it never goes to the trash).
