Addison,

I am very pleased with your draft text.  It is one of the better, more 
concise, and clearer discussions of this rather annoying problem that I've 
encountered.  I am not particularly delighted with the three names you've 
chosen, but I don't currently have a better alternative to offer.

You say that you wish to publish the document as a Note and that we would 
then reference it in our document[s].  I assume that our reference would be 
non-normative, because the text of a Note is not itself normative in any 
sense.  Right?  If my assumption is correct, then I would have no 
objections to following your suggested action.  Among the advantages is the 
fact that a Note can be published pretty quickly so that it is available no 
later than our documents going to CR status, right?

If I find little quibbles that I'd like changed, what is the best process 
for making that happen?

Thanks,
    Jim
