The mod in question is the owner of the subverse and in theory should be able to set rules for the community and enforce them as within their power in the confines of the subverse.

The distinction there has been whether or not the mod created the sub. In this instance he did not create it so I would argue he has less of an "ownership" claim.

That is something I hadn't really considered. Now I'm curious who actually established that rule. Was it set arbitrarily by axolotl? Was there an open forum to discuss subverse rules where the merits were weighed and a vote was taken, with the end result reflecting the will of that community?

Someone who usurps and subverts a community surely does not deserve the respect that should be given to the one who builds a community from the ground up.

Nope, that rule has been around since the beginning of the sub, I think back when I became a mod in whoaverse days.
