    and indication of its importance, and the 'normality'

    Often, exceptions and deviations may help to ‘prove’ (in the correct sense of ‘test’) a rule, in that the degree
    of surprise or outrage provoked by the deviation provides an indication of its importance, and the ‘normality’ of
    the behaviour it prescribes.
    (Watching the English; Kate Fox)

    Should I read it as "...provides an indication of its importance, and (of) the 'normality' of the behaviour it prescribes."?

    Thanks.
