Boat A surely took more room than she needed to sail the course, as evidenced by another boat being able to fit through the gap. Surely that's an open and closed protest against A? I think B protested the wrong boat. 

The diagram in Case 63 is a bit inconsistent with the text, which says A passed the mark about one hull length to leeward.

Maybe B, owing mark-room to A, from the zone was content to take her gruel from A, but resented C nicking in.

There are limits to claiming mark room...

True, but where and how is any boat in OP diagram unable to give mark-room?
