(B) Collect, compromise, enforce or otherwise deal with collateral;
(C) Accept the return of collateral or make repossessions; or
(D) Use, commingle or dispose of proceeds; or
(2) The secured party fails to require the debtor to account for proceeds or replace collateral.
(b) Requirements of possession not relaxed. This section does not relax the requirements of possession if attachment, perfection or enforcement of a security interest depends upon possession of the collateral by the secured party.
