6. Short answer -- grabbing the hair is legal.

You cannot grab certain parts of the uniform, but the hair is not the uniform.

If you consider how the rule would be abused by people growing extra-long hair (and spreading it out thinly like a veil or cape on purpose to draw penalties or prevent tackling of any kind), you can see why they don't make a rule protecting it. Keep your hair inside your helmet if you want people to keep their hands off of it.
