Iıve taken the suggestions that John and Bruce made and proposed revised
versions of SC 2.4.3 and 2.4.5. I gathered all the edits in LC-625, since
there are many changes and trying to maintain consistent responses in
different comments was proving difficult. So other comments in the
descriptive-title sort category contain references to the LC-625 actions.

Since there were a lot of comments, I was having trouble keeping track of
the How To Meet contents. I created wiki pages that contain the revised
text. You might find it easier to review them than the changes in LC-625
(although Iıd appreciate proofreading to be sure that the proposed changes
are consistent with those draft pages):

I removed the condition that titles be unique within a set of Web units. Do
we agree on this? I proposed the following response to commenters who
requested unique titles:

³We have changed SC 2.4.3 to "Web units have descriptive titles." This does
not require that they be unique because it is not clear what the scope is
within which they would need to be unique. In some circumstances, making
titles unique may make them less descriptive.²

Could you look at the following proposed new example:
A web application:
      A banking application lets a user inspect his bank accounts, view past
statements, and perform transactions. The web application dynamically
generates titles for each Web unit, e.g., "Bank XYZ, accounts for John
Smith" "Bank XYZ, December 2005 statement for Account 1234-5678".

Other helpful examples solicited.

Thanks, Loretta
