So the resolution on this one is that the convoy Edi-Den gets cancelled (Szykman)? And then the moves are adjudicated with that understanding?

As a twist, say there were also an A Yor which supported A Edi to Hold. Would A Edi's move order also have been converted to a hold before processing, so that it wouldn't have been dislodged either?
