Thanks for your contributions Benoit.

I have made one fix in the post-LC draft (pending), and am postponing the 
more complicated ones for discussion resolution during the post-LC, 
intra-WG spec development phase (starting).

I have changed this -- must be integer.  Dave's research of resolutions 
makes this unambiguous.

Good question.  We'll postpone it as an issue.

(Moot -- solid not allowed.)

This is an issue to be answered.

Other related future issues / changes that we will postponed till after the 
pending post-LC draft:  1.) all of the new SPs should have "metafile" as 
the Initial Value;  2.) a new text section will describe how an SP affects 
the "display list" copy of an APS, and will then point to CGM:1999 for 
details of graphical effect.
