Hi David - I was hoping (thinking) you'd be
working this evening, thanks. What you say make
sense, and perhaps we should scale back the
changes that I made in response to what Martin
suggested to include only those that clarify.
But, I do think this needs to include things like
the 1998 issue - we didn't have that on our radar
screen in Bergen, and we will get grief if we
don't say something.

So, I suggest we all look at what I sent, and try
to only consider those changes which clarify and
don't change existing meaning.

Then, I also assume we give everyone a chance to
check what we've done. No meaning's changed, just
clarification. Most of what Martin (with Susan's
blessing and input I sense) suggested was along
these lines, but not all, so as you read what I
did, please err on the side of sticking to our
original agreement not to change meaning after

Thanks David for thinking and writing wisely.

best, peck
