Is Hamer consistent with 71?

Isn't illustration 9 of Section 71 essentially the same as Hamer? I think the answer is yes.

I'm going to go out on a limb and go with Andy here, though it seems too good to be true. Yes, Hamer seems perfectly consistent with 71:
(1) the two parties bargained for the consideration in question, (2) the bargain was sought by the uncle, and his promise of $5,000 was in exchange for the nephew's promise to refrain from drinking, etc., (3) the nephew's performance consisted of forbearance,and (4) someone other than the promisee should pay up since the uncle is no more.
Why would Lessig ask this question? Is there some trick??
