He had the knowledge and maybe even the means to write it, but he has no motives, unlike Ramsay. As I said, motive is something that George can adapt, and a case can be made that the motive is not so much about desiring a certain result to happen at CB as it ended up happening, but the need to cry for help at WF itself. I recognize that Ramsay's motive seems to work the best on a very superficial level telling the enemy that his forces needed 7 days to beat Stannis not so much both the "come and see" and the idea of Ramsay being after his bride and Reek and on his way to WF also doesn't work There used to be a time that people were convicted of say a crime purely on motive alone, but it turns out that it's a very poor way to determine "whodunnit". If I follow the literary evidence on language, moments that feature Mance (on second read, because on first read you don't even know Rattleshirt is Mance), then yes Mance should be a valid suspect, even though we can only guess at his motive for now.
