We used the word "freeze" in previous working drafts[1].  Since this is 
primarily editorial, I suggest we funnel ideas to Ian through the list and 
see what seems to make sense to him.  I think motionless is pretty good, 
maybe we should add a definition of motionless in the glossary or a example 
note under checkpoints 3.3 and 3.4 to clarify any possible 
mis-interpretation of the meaning.
