Hi, Steve:

My belated apologies for missing the mappings call today. Last minute
complications at my end. I had planned to note that Mike, Michael, and I
discussed the lexical processing issue during our call this morning.
Mike will be taking this forward, and we will update on Thursday's call.
In fact, he may have already filed a bug around this, as that was one of
the first actions he was to take on it.
