The 00-359r6 proposed changes to have been reviewed twice by a CAP
working group -- once in July and again in September.  Neither working group
commented on or requested any alteration in those proposed changes.

The "clarification" you propose is contrary to the entire intent of the
proposal -- it recreates the problem this proposal is trying to cure.

You will not see a lively debate in November, instead you will see the
proposal withdrawn.
