To clarify the intended process (prior to the Formal Objection).

If any of the comments were purely editorial, we intended to make 
changes as part of the Director's Decision.  So we would get the 
benefits of the comment immediately.

Since anything substantive would take weeks to agree and then require 
another Last Call and another AC Review, we had intended to address 
those as part of next year's revision.  As you point out, some of the 
"historical" issues would be substantive.

Due to the Formal Objection, the Director needs to determine for which 
issues (if any) we should do that.  I also called Art to see if I could 
get clarification whether the Objection applied to all of the Issues 
(before hopping on a plane), but we have not yet connected.
