>>Jumping off onto the rope after re-threading is just as dangerous as letting go of the brake strand [or going off belay].

Agreed - so the only way to apportion blame is 100% to each the climber and belayer.... However, the more I think about it, the more that the situation appears to be more preventable by the climber - if they just hadn't slumped onto the rope before the belayer takes in, at least.

Both parties are making assumptions about the other partner; but only one of them has the motivation of death or serious injury if that assumption is wrong. Therefore, I reckon I can change my opinion of responsibility to 80% climber, 20% belayer - in your particular scenario, sorry ODH.
