Hello,

We discussed a language checkpoint based on Gregory original proposal 
[1].  This checkpoint was added to the 26 July 2001 draft as 1.4 with the 
following text:
1.4 Identify the primary natural language of text and text equivalents and 
all changes in natural language.

The only issue I have heard in regards to this checkpoint is the use of 
"natural language."  Joe Clark suggests we say, "1.4 Identify the primary 
human language of text and text equivalents and all changes in human 
language. "

Does anyone disagree with Joe's proposal?
Is everyone happy with the premise of this checkpoint?
