   The the word 'after' is being interpretted to mean different things.  
In some cases, the intent is clear; it means 'immediately after' but it 
MAY be interpretted to mean 'sometime in the future'.  Also I'm not sure 
if we can use words like 'immediately after' because the word 
'immediately' seems to imply 'u don't have to observe any timing 
restrictions before u start doing it' and seems erroneous.  Does SPI 
need to define this in the section 3.3 under keywords?  Or do we have to 
make sure the intent is absolutely clear everytime we use the word?
