For CR, we took the imageSmoothingEnable feature out because it hadn't been given a chance to be discussed by the working group. For level 2, I'm adding it back in, but asking for any discussion that needs to be made first. 

Silence will be taken to mean there is no objection, but positive responses are encouraged.  If I don't hear any objections by Monday Feb 11, I'll check it in. 

The following is the pending check in:
