I do not believe I have any points to make that are relevant to the survey 
that are not in my change proposal. I don't have a problem with the 
working group adopting an incomplete proposal that is later fixed through 
bug reports; many proposals start off incomplete and are later fixed as 
problems are discovered. I was just attempting to clarify the situation 
for Julian's benefit.
