aloha, roland -- thanks for the clarification...  i should have done
more "due diligence" before posting my query -- especially since i 
participated in that face2face, albeit remotely...  i also thought 
that i had checked the latest editor's draft as linked to from the
WG's deliverables document, but apparently not...

thanks again, gregory.
