    Problem with making rules is all the "what if's" that didn't come up initially when making the rule.

    When it comes to a direct line regardless of obstacles, usually they are, the topic of discussion is how to measure that distance when there is obstacles, openings, etc.
    Doorway seems to have an understood meaning in the building trades the difference in the two sections

    680 specifies a doorway with a hinged or sliding door (barrier) to separate the swimming pool area from the room in your post

    My point is most would require, if a rec was in a cabinet in the swimming pool area to have GFCI protection. The wording is the same in both sections. As written the cabinet door does not create a separation that would be considered a barrier.

    I agree if the code intends to exempt the rec in a cabinet it needs to be clear

    I did not check out what is in 680 but as far as 210.8 goes, 2017 they added wording that I thought was clear the cabinet door is such a barrier. Now it is mentioned that will go away again. Must have been a failed attempt at whatever they were trying to get out of the first time around?

    Why? It is either GFCI protected or it is not, why does it matter if it is single pole, two pole or even three pole?

    Maybe it's just me. Never found one in resi fuse box in last 10 years.
    How many 2-pole resets have you installed, and where, much less 3-pole?

    Not sure how the test/ reset being accessible effects anything as far as GFCI protection of a Rec. goes.

    See first paragraph of 210.8 and 210.12
