I request that you either pick one, or submit both as two separate 
change proposals.  In either case, I request that you supply more 
details so that this proposal / these proposals can be applied without 
ambiguity.  This information needs to not only be sufficient for the 
editor, but also sufficient for anybody in the working group who may 
wish to comment on this proposal should it go to survey.
