Thanks Magnus, this is what I thought the change should be. I'll  
update the editors draft, since what we currently have is clearly  
incorrect (ACTION-532).  This should address ISSUE-188.

If anyone has any concern with this resolution, please indicate so  
before our call tomorrow.

regards, Frederick
