If it has been approved for human use and is not on the banned list then it is ok. But nothing that is approved and binds isn't on the list... if it's been approved you know it works so it will be banned.
The key bit is in the new 2011 code under Non Approved Substances:
"A new section -- 'Non-Approved Substances' -- has been added to the 2011 list. This 'open' section addresses the issue of the abuse of pharmacological substances for the purpose of performance enhancement that are not included in other sections of the List and that are not approved by any governmental regulatory health authority for human therapeutic use (i.e. drugs under pre-clinical or clinical development or discontinued). These substances will be prohibited at all times (in and out-of-competition)."http://www.deccanherald.com/content/977 ... bited.html
I am not sure if I am with you and as you have raised an interesting point esp about androgen receptor sites I would like you to provide some more help.
This is the sec(s) from banned list.
S0. NON-APPROVED SUBSTANCES
