Yes, I did that today but never got around to sending out an email
about it. Sorry. The change was to put it inline with P&C. Do you see
any issues arising from the new NS? should I change it back? I'm of
the position that NSs should not be dated because changing NS and,
hence semantics, for elements in the future is probably a bad idea.

Kind regards,
