I've raised a question about the Steven King test case.  However the
issue is resolved it won't affect implementations, so I consider the
issue to be editorial.  

I'd like the WG to look at the point I've made and decide whether we
think it constitutes a real problem with the spec.  If folks look at it
say that they understand the point I've made and they are fine with the
test case as is, then so am I* and if we have a couple of
implementations we can approve it.  If folks say they think there might
be a problem, then I hope someone will take an action to propose an
alternative.

I'm keen we don't rathole on this - because it is a tarpit.  My advice
is to not spend a lot of time on it.  If there is doubt - just avoid the
issue.  If we are confident - then its fine as is.

Brian

* I'm not just wimping out here.  My current understanding is that if
folks don't think there is problem, there really isn't - I think some
philosopher wittered (sic) on about that sort of thing at length a
little while back.
