Granted, 1818 England is not the exemplar of reason that 23rd century Vulcan ought to be, but, much of the point of T'Pring demanding combat was that this was something that was on the books centuries past the point that it still made any sense.
The bolded part is very much correct. And yet, note that 1818 England was enough of an exemplar of reason that, when the long-since-obsolete ritual was evoked, the person challenged to battle refused to participate... (Yes, I know "Amok Time" loads up the situation so that Spock can't take this route, but that's always felt a bit on the fishy side.)
