Part of Item: 
Comment Type: technical
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
The note to SC 3.1.2 reads: \"This requirement does not apply to individual words or phrases that have become part of the primary language of the content.\": this is a problem for foreign words in a passage or quote that is not in the primary language.

This wording was introduced in the June 2006 Working Draft; before that, it read \"This does not include use of foreign words in text where such usage is a standard extension of the language,\" but I believe this was changed because the term \"foreign\" was considered problematic.

Proposed Change:
Rephrase the note to: \"This requirement does not apply to individual words or phrases that have become part of the language of the immediately neighbouring text.\"
